Stunning lampwork glass icicles to brighten your Christmas, holiday and winter decorating. Glass catches the light and these icicles will add sparkle to any room or setting. Our icicles come in an attractive metal box, so they’re ready to give as gifts.
Our mixed sets give you all three of our icicle designs, and you’ll receive an equal number of each.
- high twist design where twists work their way tightly along the length of the icicle.
- twisty design where the twists work their way more loosely along the length of the icicle.
- zig zag design where the twists work back and forward along the length of the icicle.
The icicles are made from borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is strong and durable. It’s used for kitchen dishes and scientific glassware.
Each icicle is individually made by hand in our Yorkshire studio. This means that every icicle will be slightly different, adding to their charm.
Each icicle is made by melting borosilicate glass rod at temperatures of around approximately 1250°C (2300°F). Icicles are then annealed in a digitally controlled kiln to ensure that any stress that is introduced while the icicle is being made is removed. Stress occurs during making because of the high temperatures needed to melt the glass, and annealing the glass makes sure the icicle is strong.
Each icicle is approximately 12.5cm (5in) long. Icicles are strung with linen thread so they are ready to hang as soon as they’re unpacked.
To ensure that your icicles reach you in perfect condition they’ll come in a felt pouch and metal presentation box. This makes sure that the icicles can’t bang against each other during transit and makes it easy to store them safely for next year.
You’ll also receive a postcard with information about your icicles – and if you’d like to send these as a gift we’re happy to add a gift card and omit the invoice.
Sets of up to 6 icicles come in a shallow tin which measures 16.9cm by 13cm by 1.8cm (6.6in by 5.2in by 0.7in). Once packed this will easily fit through letterboxes, making it an ideal gift to post.
Sets of 7 or more icicles come in a larger tin which measure 16.9cm by 13cm by 5.7cm. (6.6in by 5.2in by 2.2).
Prices include UK postage.
If you’d like to send icicles to several people just leave a note on your order to say this and we’ll contact you to ask for names, addresses and your message for the gift card.
These sets are ready to post.
