Handcrafted Crystal Glass

Handcrafted Crystal Glass 960 435 Julia Ochsenreither

A product that has been in our store for years and we absolutely love are these beautiful handcrafted crystal glass pieces that are produced in the Czech Republic. The collection contains bowls and glasses of all sizes, colors, and patterns. Although they are of the highest quality, they are designed with the intention that they can be used in daily life.

The production focuses on the century old glass making tradition of the Czech Republic while incoroporating new and fresh approaches. Techniques that are used in production are traditional mouth blowing, hand engraving, hand painting, hand cutting and sandblasting of bohemian crystal. These fine pieces of glass are produced by skilled czech craftsmen that are masters in all of the traditional techniques. Each piece of the collection is therefore handcrafted and original.

Bohemian crystal was more sought after by wealthy clients at the turn of the seventeenth and eighteenth century and became more popular than venetian glass. The area around the Czech borders became the trading and production center for the glassmaking industry.
