Like the cutting and blowing of Waterford's crystal, the hand-crafting of cased crystal is a unique and specialized art, with maters of its own.
Thus did Waterford travel to Hungary to seek them out. There, using centuries-old techniques of glassblowing, the artisans shape the pure, clear crystal with little more than their breath and instincts. Yet, it is their mastery of the fusion of clear and colored crystal that sets them apart... When the newly-formed clear crystal, molten hot and unstable, is once again plunged into a fiery kiln where amidst the flames brilliant, colored crystal encases its body. Only then can each perfect piece be passed to a master cutter, who with care and precision, painstakingly cuts through the envelope of color to release the pure crystal encased beneath it.
Since 1783, Waterford has left its mark upon each age with beautiful and timeless creations, a legacy that has celebrated a passionate commitment to creativity and the pursuit of excellence. No wonder that Waterford, in its dream to create crystal encased in jewel-like colors, looked to the celebrated crystal makers of Hungary, renowned since time immemorial for perfection in the art of cased, colored crystal.Please see our other ornaments.
