German Overlay

This crystal series is so beautiful and full of life. This is two layers of crystal, one clear and one overlaid with stunning colored crystal. What makes this process remarkable is not only the beauty of the colored layer over the top of the brilliantly clear crystal creates a marriage of light and astonishing results.

This technique of layering the top layer of colored glass on to the blown clear crystal is both skillful and remarkable. The precision of the process takes years of experience. The sparkle of the clear crystal flashing light through the color once it has been cut, is amazing.

None of these fine examples of crystal overlay art will ever be produced again. The German factory, that made this series, closed in the early 1980s and never reopened. Each of these pieces are treasures to hold. The color of each piece may vary as they are all hand blown.
