Crafting Kilkenny Crystal
Founded in 1969 by Patrick Clancy, Kilkenny Crystal is Ireland?s oldest Family-owned Crystal Studio Workshop. The use of traditional techniques means that the crystal is likened to antique quality. Kilkenny Crystal workshop is situated in Tinnamona just outside Callan just 16km from Kilkenny City. Crystal design is a true craft and each piece is given care and time to create. Each piece is deeply cut by hand by highly trained craftspeople and then polished with care to retain a fine finish. Creating many original designs and unusual pieces, and due to the limited number of pieces produced each year many items become valuable collectors? items. Cutting deep into glass is a slow process, but it allows the time necessary to achieve the desired accuracy. The finished piece therefore catches and reflects the light to the maximum degree. The use of these traditional methods ensures that the finished piece has the sharpness, definition, and accuracy associated with crystal produced before mass production methods were employed in recent years. Working from a small production base our philosophy is & always has been that there is no substitute for quality.
