After the closure of the Waterford Crystal factory in Waterford City Ireland in January 2009, a group of Master craftsmen with a combined total of over 130 years of experience in glass- making, came together and made the decision to set up a glass making facility of their own in the very heart of Waterford City.
In these modern times the vast majority of glass making companies now use automation to produce their products. The Irish Handmade Glass Company all products have been handmade and the glass is a non- lead based crystal, ‘Crystalline’.
The ‘Wildflowers’ takes it design inspiration from flora found in Ireland. Each color used in making the pieces are associated with Irish flora, The orange of the Poppy, the green of the Fern, the yellow of the buttercup and the violet of the bluebell are just some of the colors used in this Summery collection. Each piece is painstakingly hand cut with 3 highly polished ‘olive’ cuts to add to its beauty. The Wildflowers large vase being the tallest of the collection, weight approximately 2.4kg
