Engraving our Glassware

Glass can be decorated by etching, sandblasting or laser cutting, but we favour engraving, because the designs are cut into the glass rather than applied to the surface.

With the steadiest of hands, our engravers cut the patterns on fast-turning wheels, using black ink to help them with the positioning.

If you take a closer look at our glassware, you'll be able to see and feel the cutting marks. Styles such as the Oval and Greek Key are complicated, but the Fern is possibly the hardest to create, since it covers the whole area of the glass.

Meanwhile, the Lens has to go through two processes, first cutting, and then polishing to make the thumbprints translucent.

If you watch any of our videos, you will see just how much craftmanship goes into each glass.
