In Fine Art’s glass department, a “bakehouse” for crystal has been created by our glassmakers, giving its name to a new concept of art-glass lighting. A five-day process of hand-creating crystal spires and crystal river stones, then baking and annealing them for several days at high temperatures to form a massive block, which is then carefully polished. Bubbles and seeds formed naturally in the slow bakehouse process add to the dynamic effect when the slabs are illuminated by light sources. The entire crystal composition comes to life. Available in Indoor/Outdoor silver and bronze finishes, and standard silver and standard gold leaf (Indoor only) with two different looks—Crystal Spires and Crystal River Stones.
