The glass mixture is melted in furnaces at 1,450°C. The glassmaker takes a small quantity of molten glass on the end of a glass pipe, then blows a bulb into the desired shape. After the crystal is shaped and slowly cooled (to prevent cracking), the glasscutter cuts the piece by hand using traditional carborundum or diamond cutting wheels of varying levels of fineness.
Finally they polish the piece by hand until it feels perfectly smooth and sparkles in the light. Theres little point in investing in beautiful glasses and fine whisky if youre scooping ice out of any old bowl. This hefty cut crystal ice bucket adds elegance to the cocktail-making process.
