All of our glassware is handmade from Lead-free crystal. Crafts people take very hot glass from the furness on a rod, they shape it a little, and then blow the material into moulds.
After the glass has cooled and been through annealing (which is when it is cooled to a very low temperature, twice) the head of the glass is cut off, and the rims are polished. Finally, the engraving process can begin.
Through pressing the glass onto fast-turning ceramic wheels, the engravers create our intricate patterns. They follow the patterns by painting on the glass with ink. It is time-consuming and skillful work, carefully done by hand, which makes each glass unique.
Last year we visited the factory, and took some films of the process. Please take a look at the process up close.
