Asem Nada comes from a family with a long tradition of glass artisans specialized in flame worked glass. His grandfather, a master glassblower himself, who was instrumental in helping Asem develop a passion for glass. Asem was trained in Northern Italy under the guidance of his grandfather and other teachers. Now, with 45 years of experience, Asem still enjoys watching the glass take shape. Colouring and annealing (firing in a kiln) add character and uniqueness to each piece and strengthens the glass. He strives for originality and maintains the high quality of his products by using the finest materials, such as Czech glass and 22 karat gold.
