Irish Handmade Glass History

After the closure of the Waterford Crystal factories in Ireland in 2009, a team of master craftsmen came together & formed The Irish Handmade Glass Company. Located in the Kite Design Studios on Henrietta Street, in the heart of The Viking Triangle in Waterford City, we aim to keep our centuries old craft & tradition alive. We welcome visitors to our studio to watch in amazement as we create works of art before your very eyes. Our designs are a breath of fresh & are surprisingly affordable. Our use of colour & cutting makes every piece unique & a gift that will be treasured for ever.
