he opal layer is ground using wedge-shaped cutters, which intersect. Due to this a design arises with a strict, geometrical decorative two-thirds shape. By grinding off the opal layer the crystal glass is revealed. The brightness, shine and combination of cutting gives rise to a unique piece of art, concealing tradition and precision, a tribute to craftsmanship and respect for today’s design. The trophy merges the traditional technique of glass-blowing and the precision of master cutters. The method of production is so demanding that it is not possible to correct the tiniest of mistakes. The whole piece is ruined and must be started again.
