Creative Ceramics KFT was founded in 1999 by Harry Sowersby, co-owner of Creative Glass AG located in Switzerland. Creative Glass is a leading company for glass art supplies in Europe with subsidiaries in Austria and the UK. Marta Edöcs is the commercial manager of the Creative Ceramics factory in Hungary. In 2008 we relocated to new larger premises in Sopron in order to increase our production to meet the growing market.
Since 1999 we have constantly added new contemporary mould designs to our range which now includes over 250 models.
Our Design Concept
We manufacture durable slumping moulds for glass tableware and other decorative objects to fulfill the requirements of all users, from industrial producers to individual glass studios. Whilst we constantly respond to trends and market developments in shape and form, we always stress the functionality of the final product.
Our slumping moulds are basic tools, allowing the artist greater freedom of expression; many of our moulds lend themselves to more than one type of glass object.
Our Sales Policy
Our moulds are sold through a network of dealers and outlets in many countries. You can find the list of our partners in the distributors section of this website. Having a supply source close to the end-user has proved to be the most environmentally friendly and least expensive way to make the product readily available. The Creative Glass outlets in Rochester UK, Sattledt Austria and Volketswil Switzerland are the only sales points where all models are available.
We are represented in the US and Canada by Bullseye Glass Company of Portland / Oregon who also supply many of our customers in the Far East.
We are pleased that all of our partners are also carriers of glass and supplies for the kiln worker; their invaluable knowledge and experience providing reliable support for customers.
As kiln working develops in countries not covered, we will make efforts to expand our distribution network. You can apply by contacting us here.
Our Quality Standard
We care about our product. This is why glass workers worldwide agree our moulds are simply the best.
Yes, we make great moulds but, we also have a 30+ year background in kiln forming glass. This knowledge helps us to understand what kind of mould is required to make a well-crafted, well designed piece of kiln worked glass.
Our main focus is to supply the market with mould concepts which enable the user to achieve a clean, functional and aesthetically pleasing result.
When looking at our moulds, you will quickly see that they look different from the product which some of our competitors propose - namely bisque (unglazed ceramic objects). What makes our moulds better is that they are specifically made as slumping moulds – nothing else. Our plus is understanding what the glass needs and how the mould has to respond to that. When selecting one of our moulds you can be sure you have made a decision for success with your glass working.
Durability is guaranteed by a carefully formulated mix of raw materials, enabling the moulds to withstand many thousands of firings. Excellent heat transmission is guaranteed due to consistent wall thickness in the mould, resulting in even heating and cooling of the glass as well as excellent thermal shock resistance.
Every new mould design is evaluated for its concept, tested for its functionality and released only when found satisfactory. For a hand-made product, subject to varying shrinkage rates during the drying process, consistency is of major importance and our quality control tests at regular intervals ensure that size and shape remain consistent with the original design.
