Greeting Card (Square): Forming a glass foot on a wine glass: CARD-SQ-4

On this card you can see a glass foot on the bottom of a wine glass stem being crafted using traditional techniques. The glass is pre-heated using a gas torch before being rotated and squeezed into shape between two flat graphite pads. Historically, wooden boards were used, but these burn out too fast meaning that there is too much variation in the diameter of the foot. 

A typical Cumbria Crystal wine glass will take about 12 days to make using traditional processes.

This card is left blank for your personal message. Envelope included.
