Copper-Wheel engraving is considered one of the most difficult art forms known to man as the craft takes 10 years to master. Each engraving takes more that 24 hours to complete. From the smallest Cordial Glass to the largest Decanter, every piece is hand-held to one of 50 flying copper-wheels as each stroke of the design is engraved Into the crystal by hand.

About the Artist - Queen Lace Crystal

QLCNot just a crystal, but a work of art. Copper wheel engraving is not to be confused with sandblasting. Copper wheel engraving requires a high level of skill, and there are not many artists who know how to do it, or can do it well. The artist must know how to draw as much as how to carve. The image is carved into the crystal using tiny copper grinding wheels, which allow the artist to give you the greatest amount of depth and detail possible. The crystal is held up against the wheels, which turn on a fixed spindle. This is why Queen Lace Crystal is valued by collectors who appreciate the value of intricate, high-quality art.
