Through Ocean Glass Public Company Limited — the glass making expertise and manufacturer of Thailand in collaboration with the glass making expertise of Toyo-Sasaki Glass of Japan and the most advance technology from German, have resulted in the creation of world-class quality crystal glass in December 2009 with an investment of 1 billion Baht. New lead-free and barium-free crystal glass composition, with physical aesthetics comparable to conventional lead crystal, result in exceptional clarity and brilliance, with extra strength & durability. The goal was to sell 10 million glasses, in the world market within 10 years. Lucaris then opened their first wine glass collections: ‘Bangkok Bliss’ and ‘Tokyo Temptation’. After accomplishing success with the first two collections, Lucaris opened another collection called the ‘Shanghai Soul’ which was then followed by ‘Hong Kong Hip’. After this they launched the ‘Shanghai Soul Grande’ which was most recently followed by the ‘Desire’ collection.
