The Story…. “Borghese Luce Arte
Situated within the village of Crouch End in North London is the showroom and workshop of Rocco Borghese. It is here where fascinating and unique pieces of lighting sculptures are created by hand blowing and manipulating glass to bring to life visually captivating pieces designed to perfectly suit the environment to which they would be fitted whilst still retaining the practical side of illumination.
Born in Southern Italy, Rocco’s interest in working with glass began at the age of 13 whilst watching his father at work. Rocco’s father’s passion in the art of working with glass also extended to working with Murano glass where his talent called for him to move to Venezia where he became a highly respected glass sculptor. So profound was his father’s talent that he was encouraged to open his own school for glass furnace work. It was in this school, under the loving tutorage of his father, where Rocco began his apprenticeship as a teenage boy learning the ancient art of glass blowing. An age old divine art form being handed down from father to son.
Though natural talent is a prerequisite to become a qualified profession glass blower, above that, this art form demands complete and exacting dedication. One must master the fusing of the techniques of manipulation and split second timing in order to effectively manage the 1000 degrees of endured heat required to work with glass. There are countless years of trial and error involved in learning the ways of glass. After many years of devotion, Rocco has mastered his own creative style and has gone on to designing an entirely new concept in art from - individual pieces made for specific requirements.
His dream was to use this time endured skill to create personal pieces of beauty to grace areas where this new art form could be appreciated by all who are endowed with the gift of sight. To facilitate this dream, Rocco embark on his own career and went to university to study Architecture and Interior Design in an effort to blend this hard found knowledge and passion for glass blowing with the practical skill of Architecture.
Today, Rocco has immersed himself in his one true passion - creating his own lighting sculptures custom designed to grace the homes of those seeking more than just a light fixture. With every commissioned piece, Rocco finds himself challenged not only by the requirements of a particular space to which this commission will adorn, but also ensuring it reflects the very character of the home owners themselves. All it takes is to love his work and in return a couple of site visits are all that is needed to build the inspiration he needs to create the soul of the piece he will personally sculpture for you.
This is our Gallery and work studio, where Rocco creates all the different designs you will see in the following pages, some of the individual pieces that you will see have been displayed and sold, others are shown as examples of some of the work we do, we hope that you can be inspired, don't forget to see our floor standing pieces.

WHAT WE DO
Now we can create totally individual hand-blown sculptured glass lighting features, chandeliers, free-standing or ornamental.
If you are looking for a light that is mass produced or a repetetive product, that you would find in the lighting manufacturers stores and high street shops even lighting specialists, that is imported from the far east, you have come to the wrong place. We deal with individual and artistic pieces that are mainly commisioned, they can be pairs or multiples, not one will be identical, you will receive a certificate signed by Rocco for originality, or for future collective valuation. Every piece is made in our gallery.
This is a statement from Rocco Borghese our director and senior glass sculptor:
Glass Artlights,"As a medium to work with, glass has a wonderful purity I always loved it" he says, "when you melt and thicken the glass it shines like a diamond".
"It hardens within a few seconds of being taken out of the heat, which makes it unique and exciting to use.
"I take my inspiration from all over - from plants and trees and dreams of surreal artworks, encompassing art lighting. Because they are all handblown, every single piece is unique, even if it is part of a pair"
