A good mold-maker creates a glassmaker's fortune…

A mould-maker's activity consists in designing and producing moulds necessary to the creation and the manufacturing of all hollow glass objects. Such items include small bottles for perfumes or cosmetics and pharmaceutical products as well as everyday bottles, carafes, glasses, plates, salt shakers and many other culinary articles. They also include other useful objects such as electric insulators, eyeglass lenses, television screens and headlight lenses.

It is essential that these moulds be manufactured with precision and in accordance with the style required by glasswork customers. They must also use only those materials that allow glassmaking machinery to operate properly.
