Announcement   Vitreus Ignis was born as a family business in 2002 when we moved from Buenos Aires to Madrid.
Our name, from latin Vitreus: Vidrio (glass) and Ignis: Fire, Passion; perfectly describes how we feel, the way we work and what we hope to transmit through our pieces.
Glass torch is an old trade that requires years of training and consistency to dominate the technique. Fusing and jewelry making are other activities around our workshop. Together, these techniques give way to a wide range of possibilities, which are reflected in our products.
Our pieces are made one by one, entirely hand-crafted. As artisans, we focus on quality before quantity, using creativity as a strategy to constantly create new pieces.
Our inspiration roots from nature, its forms and colors. With help from the caress of the flame on the glass, transforming it into something soft and manageable, we are able to transmit the force and movement of a feline, the innocence of a boy reflected in the eyes of a ladybug, the complexity and detail of a beetle, the contrast of color and texture in an exclusive piece of jewelry.
Ultimately, Vitreus Ignis is a craftsman workshop connected through love, seeing as how we have the great privilege to be able to dedicate ourselves to a job that we love and are passionate about.

Vitreus Ignis, our company.
In our workshop we elaborate decorative pieces as well as jewelry, glass being the protagonist.
To elaborate these pieces we apply several techniques such as the Candilon technique or Molten Glass Torch, Fusing and jewelry making.
Pieces made with the blowtorch need oxygen and propane. Oxygen helps raise the temperatures which allows the glass to soften. We use the best quality glass for all of our pieces.
Most of the decorating is done during the creative process, meaning the addition of elements for different effects (inclusions, strings, confetti, silver leaves, gold leaves, etc.) is added while the piece is hot and still being created.
Depending on the piece and its elaboration, previous work may be required mixing colors. Color can also be added little by little if required on a specific piece.
There are three main methods within the blowtorch technique: Glass beads, solid glass sculptures and blown glass (pipe or tube blown).
With Fusing, the preparation of the components of the pieces is done while still cold. The glass pieces are cut flat and are arranged accordingly. After placing them in the oven, a curve temperature for fusion is calculated (which depends on the size and thickness of the pieces to be fusioned), obtaining as a result, pieces to be used later for jewelry. Other cases require two or more fusings, such as with thermoformation (plates, bowls, lamps, among others.)

Our beginnings in jewelry was a result for the need to have a better quality base for our glass pieces. Silver, processed through different techniques, gave us the base we were looking for to compliment and enhance the beauty of the glass.

Our dedication in this field has lead us to diverse schools such as the National Glass Center in La Granja de San Ildefonso, The Glass Foundation Center in Barcelona, Corning Museum of Glass in USA and several specific workshops throughout Argentina, Spain and Italy.

Our training involves various techniques: Blown Glass, Blowtorch, Ovened Blown Glass, Roll-up, Japonese Glass Beads, Mold Inclusions, Human Anatomy with Glass, Fusing, Thermal melting and Thermalformations, Glass Paste, Jewelry, Fired Enamel on metal, Painting over Light, etc.

The past few years we have been doing several exhibition workshops, training and craft fairs at places such as the Glass Museum of Alcorcon, different Schools, Musuem of art and Popular Cultures, Freelance University of Madrid, Days of European Craftshows in Madrid and Paris, Private Businesses associated with Glass, The Glass Foundation Center in Barcelona, etc.
