When we came across artist Mary Callaghan's lino prints, the strong linear quality, and contrasting shapes, we immediately thought of the potential to translate her work in cut glass. Eamonn Terry is an expert craftsman specialising in hand-cut Irish crystal based in An Rinn, Waterford who has been on our radar for some time.

We were delighted both Eamonn and Mary shared our enthusiasm for the project which resulted in a seamless collaborative process. Three designs were chosen based on Mary's Dursey Collection of lino prints, a series which draws inspiration from three seasons Mary spent living on the rocky outcrop off the wild Sout West coast of Cork.

This design 'Dursey Walls' depicts the traditional hand-built stone walls which pepper Dursey island, a familiar sight for Mary on her daily walks. The oval cuts form a pattern, which is softened by the irregular matte and polished finishes. This satisfyingly weighty tumbler, handblown in Waterford, sits comfortably in the hand. Eamonn has ground the base of each glass, keeping the design minimal but for the inclusion of our Áras logo, engraved on the base of each.

Dimensions: Each tumbler measures 9cm tall x 6.5cm at the base. To keep your piece of Irish crystal in pristine condition, Hand wash in warm soapy water, rinsing in cool water to remove residue. Dry immediately with a lint-free cloth. Our linen tea cloth is perfect!
