Production

ARTĚL crystal is painstakingly handcrafted by a team of highly skilled Czech artisans using only traditional production methods. After each piece is mouth-blown to achieve the desired shape, it is decorated using one or more of the techniques described below. Remarkably, these decorative techniques are practiced entirely “freehand” – that is, our skilled artisans use no more than hand-applied markings as a guide to producing even our most intricately detailed patterns or designs. Given the slight irregularities of mouth-blown crystal, this means not only that motifs must be individually adjusted for every piece, but also that no two ARTĚL pieces are ever exactly alike.
