Our fathers were Master Craftsmen at Waterford Crystal and naturally we all followed in their footsteps. We became apprentices to the great masters of glassblowing and cutting at the tender ages of 15 years. Every day we learned more and more, until after 8 years we too, like our fathers, became masters of our craft.
We worked there with pride, and took pleasure in the joy our skill and quality brought to others throughout the world. Until in 2009 the unthinkable happened and the factory closed and the workforce was laid off. Our world was shattered.
A group of us were determined that this could not happen, the age old craft of Glassmaking, associated with the oldest city in Ireland, Waterford, could not be lost. Our determination saw us form a brand new crystal company in the very heart of Waterford City; The Irish Handmade Glass Company was born.
Producing 100% mouth blown and hand cut crystal, we take pride in every piece we produce. Specialising in coloured hand cut crystal we have quickly become one of Irelands leading crystal manufacturers. Please feel free to browse through our website and be amazed at the works of art produced by our craftsmen.
