With Diamond, a contemporary cut crystal barware collection, Richard Brendon continues to focus on collaborating with the best traditional craftsmen in the world to produce contemporary but timeless objects.
Diamond brings a clean-cut look and feel to lead crystal barware. This has been achieved by designing simple forms which are mouth-blown and then hand-cut with a tight diamond pattern to the lower third and bottom of each piece. As light passes through the crystal, it is brought to life by refractions which create a myriad of colors and glistening sparkles. Lead crystal was first perfected over 400 years ago in England and the diamond cut quickly became one of the most popular patterns. Richard celebrates centuries of design heritage with his contemporary take on the traditional cut. Today Bohemia is the world leading center for quality crystal production, and Richard Brendon is delighted to be working with master craftsmen in the Czech Republic to produce Diamond.
