ABOUT US> THE EGO

The EGO

The choice of the name EGO is a reference to the egg shape in English and the fact that each candle is unique and perfectly imperfect, as it is made by the hand of Man and this is what makes it so interesting and powerful !

The EGO ritual is an invitation to refocus, take care of Yourself, and take Your time. It's an invitation to beauty and creativity!

Made with Love, Made by Hand, Made in France.

EGO

Term designating the self of an individual person, the conscious subject.
Psychology: The conscious mind, one’s image of oneself.

UNALTERABLE COLORS

The color of the EGOs is unalterable as it is tinted in the mass of the glass. Indeed, the colors of each EGO come from intensely colored glass bars called ballots. Prepared the day before the actual glass blowing, they are cut into small slices and preheated to about 550 ° C.

THE DANCE OF THE GLASS BLOWERS

Delicately pick up the glass in the oven, equalize, blow, collect, blow again…The work of the glassmakers resembles a dance of light and fire that requires significant concentration. Each glassmaker knows exactly what he has to do and everyone has his own role to play.

A PERFECT EGO

The hand of Man is felt in each EGO. They are irregular, small bubbles sometimes show up, tiny black spots or laces, may appear unexpectedly... the perfect EGO does not exist… it is precisely its imperfection that makes it so UNIQUE.

EXCEPTIONAL KNOW-HOW

Once the piece is given its overall shape, it is welded at the other end to a pontil and separated from the cane with a slight shock. The piece is then reheated and the glassmaker can rework its upper part, opening it with iron bars and trimming (cutting) it with scissors.

A UNIQUE SIGNATURE

Once the desired dimensions are obtained -never exactly the same but always perfect! - the glassblower detaches the pontil, polishes the back of the glass with a torch and stamps it with the ANA’E MILOH signature logo.

17 HOURS LATER ...

The glass piece is deposited in an arch for annealing, that is to say very slow cooling (several hours) of the piece to avoid any thermal shocks that could weaken it.
17 hours later... A new EGO is born, unique and perfectly imperfect !
