Blown Glass Chefs Hat
A chef s hat is also known as a toque. Chefs began wearing these hats to blend in with the monks, by wearing similar shaped hats, as they sought refuge in the monasteries. Chefs were being persecuted for their creativity. The hats have remained a symbol of the profession.
Each glass ornament is mouth-blown into finely carved molds. A solution of hot liquid silver is added for exceptional color and vibrance. Ornaments are then hand-painted and hand-glittered for a fine finish.
