Overview
More
Criostal na Rinne (Ring Crystal) is situated in the picturesque Irish-speaking Gaeltacht of Rinn Ua Guanach (An Rinn), in Co Waterford; and is owned and run by Eamonn Terry, a native of the area. As a former master craftsman cutter with Waterford Crystal, before establishing his own crystal studio in 1987, Eamonn has honed his craft for over forty years, producing Irish crystal of breathtaking quality and beauty. Inspired by the surrounding lush countryside of the Deise, of which many of the pieces are named for, Eamonn designs and creates an extensive range of unique giftware, which include Stemware, Tableware, Bowls and Vases, Jewellery, Lighting, Executive Gifts, Wedding Gifts, Trophyware / Trophies and Presentation Pieces to suit every occasion and budget. The full-lead crystal displays a high brilliance, polished finish and each piece showcases the very best in Irish craft with both traditional and modern deep prismatic-cut designs. Each piece of crystal is handmade in the traditional manner and is completely unique. Many of the pieces can be engraved with a personalised message, names and dates, a family crest or even photographs as a truly unique gift for family or friends and if you're looking for a truly bespoke piece why not contact Eamonn to discuss a commission. Ta athas orainn ar gcuid gno a dheanamh as Gaeilge. As a native Irish speaker Eamonn is delighted to facilitate Gaeilge (Gaelic) whenever possible.
