Picture lying in a sun-warmed Irish field on a lazy summer afternoon. The air smells fresh, and the only sounds are the gentle rustling of the purple flowering heather surrounding you and the rhythmic buzzing of dragonfly wings. The master craftsmen at the Irish Handmade Glass Company in Waterford City have captured that perfect moment and preserved it in this stunning Wild Heather bud vase, which features amethyst-blue coloring and hand-cut dragonfly design.

Did You Know? Our Irish Handmade Glass Company products are freeblown without the use of molds. Color is added to the crystal while it is still molten, and the craftsmen then manipulate and coax it into the required shape, design, and size, using the same wooden tools that have been in existence for centuries.
About the Artists.
After the closure of the Waterford Crystal factory in Waterford City, Ireland in 2009, a group of master craftsmen with a combined total of more than 130 years of experience in glassmaking came together and decided to set up a glassmaking studio of their own in the heart of Waterford City. The Irish Handmade Glass Company aims to bring the craft of glassmaking to life. Read the story of our artisan, The Irish Handmade Glass Company.
