Hand-crafted crystal is essential when it comes to a fine-dining experience. If you’re looking for drinkware to impress, crystal drinkware is just the right choice! Whether you are looking to hold an elegant event, or just simply looking to live a more luxurious lifestyle, equipping your at-home bar with crystal drinkware is a great way to do that.
The Art of Handcrafted Crystal
There is no technology to replace proficiency when it comes to creating hand-crafted crystals. Crystal drinkware is created by a team of Master Craftsmen who possess superb artisanal talent. Because crystal is unique, no design is exactly the same. Although technology has advanced in recent years, high-end crystals, such as those offered by Waterford Crystal, are created using the same age-old techniques. At Waterford Crystal, for example, their craftsmen must have completed an eight-year apprenticeship to learn the appropriate skills and techniques. Creating handcrafted crystals requires artistic excellence and precision.
The first step in creating handcrafted crystals occurs with Master Blowers. They first shape the molten crystal to create solid pieces, and then they carefully inspect each piece to follow strict quality guidelines. For high-end crystal producers, the crystal may be inspected up to six times throughout the production process. After the inspection, Master Cutters work to mark each piece with a geometric grid they will follow to transfer the unique pattern to the crystal. Later, this grid is removed throughout the cleaning process. The Master Cutters oftentimes do two different types of cutting, known as flat cutting and wedge cutting. With enough pressure, they can create the unique and stunning design of the crystal all while ensuring it maintains its strength and durability.
Lastly, handcrafted crystal is sculpted and polished to ensure its smooth and luxurious feel. The sculpting is three-dimensional, as it is easier to sculpt the creation from a solid block of crystal. The final step is the engraving process. The deeper the engraver goes into the crystal, the more prominent the design will appear!
