Kitchen Tales With Mosser Glass


In celebration of brands doing big things, this spotlight feature is on Mosser Glass. Mosser Glass is a small family-owned American heritage brand, but their roots date back more than half a century—marrying fine craftsmanship in high-quality glassware designs.  

Today, family members still operate the company, keeping the family legacy well within the products produced without compromising on what their customers cherish the most, beautiful hand-pressed glassware.  Some of the products offered in the collection are even completely made from old moulds that have been around for decades from closed manufacturers or acquired from auctions.   

From the prepping station to family entertaining, there are glassware pieces that can be integrated with your tableware. This pestle and mortar are one of them! There are times when you really need one of these be it for blending certain spices, making a good guacamole, or family generational favourites. I used it to prepare spicy horsd'œuvres.  

This is an absolute kitchen essential when it comes to crushing herbs and spicesI also love getting hands-on in the kitchen when it comes to mixing spice blends, as it makes the experience all for the better if you're a fellow cook or entertaining enthusiast. 

Modern, Vintage, Sophistication 
Vintage had a sister called Contempo-Vintage. Okay, I might have made that one up, however, this is exactly what you'll find throughout the Mosser line. Classic design with fresh take on hues and modern usage.  

These gorgeous serving trays are versatile for casual or elegant table settings. What's more, the egg tray can be used for other foods aside from eggs. Use these marble colour trays in a spring tablescape with a palette like this oneThe marble colour effect and handmade veins embedded in the trays also give each style an edge.  

The Work Process: 
Ever wonder how their glassware is made? Here's the Mosser method: firstly, the pieces go through a high heating process (fired by natural gaswhere soda ash and silica sand are heightened to a melting point of 2500 F (1371 C) before a lower working temperature. Then, the cast-iron moulding process happens anywhere from one to three hours before production.  

Afterwards, the glass is pressed into the mould pattern, and then the piece is removed out of the mould. The next phase of the glass is the polishing stage. To provide a smooth finish and to create that beautifully lustrous aesthetic, most pieces go through a glazer, which fires the glass (essentially melting the outer layer). 

Finally, the glassware gets annealed, a slow coolingthree and one-half hours—processthis tempering stage makes fractures and shatters preventablePieces are checked and packed before heading out and sitting comfortably on shelves. There is such precision and technique in creating quality glassware.  

Guided tours are also on offer at the Mosser factory to get an up-close and personal experience.
