Wild Flower Bauble
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 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.
Located in the new 'Kite Design Studio', The Irish Handmade Glass Company aim to bring the craft of glass making to life for visitors to historic Henrietta Street in the Viking Quarter of Waterford City. Watch in amazement as renowned Glass Master, Richard Rowe transforms the molten glass into works of art before your very eyes.
Their aim, along with keeping the craft alive, is to create beautiful, affordable glassware, both crystal clear and also coloured which is not only pleasing to the eye, but also practical to use.
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.
