Glass cutting to fine detail requires an enormous amount of training and expertise. Our glasscutters are some of the finest in the world.
These days cutting on a manufacturing basis is sometimes carried out by computers. In the restoration field this luxury cannot be afforded or tolerated. Each piece of glass is painstaking marked out first by the glasscutter to ensure an exact copy. He then sets to work hand cutting with carborundum on his cutting lathe, patiently and skilfully following the precise patterns previously scribed on the glass. Many hours can be expended on the most intricate details.
Purely in restoration our glasscutters polish their own pieces of work. The modern way to polish is to dip the cut glass into a bath of acid, sometimes the cutter would hand refine this process.Yet again, this method is not tolerable in restoration. Each cut the cutter has made is hand polished with polishing compound using brush and cork to accomplish the sharp - knife-edge required in polishing to the ultimate standard.The end result: the finest finish with flawless and perfect hand cut glass.
