Cut Crystal Milk Bottle
Cut crystal speaks of quality and heritage but can seem outdated in today’s interiors. They are, however, amazing techniques that I feel deserve to be enjoyed. I’m inspired by applying them to contemporary shapes so that they can regain their place decorating our homes once more. The combination of craftsmanship and a modern twist creates timeless pieces that will add understated elegance to a room.
These pieces are handblown and hand cut 24 % lead crystal glass.

Handblown and handcut lead crystal glass
Handblown glass vases individually engraved and hand polished. Very versatile and characterful vases.
This geometric cut pattern was inspired by traditional cut crystal patterns. The deep cuts create some beautiful optical effects in the glass.
Traditional cut crystal often features a star on the base of a piece to remove the 'punty' mark. I've taken the star pattern and moved it onto the side to make a gorgeous constellation pattern.
