About the artwork

A collaborative project with Waterford embracing traditional crystal cutting techniques and engaging deep cuts to create depth and exaggerated forms.

This unique collaboration combines Waterford's longstanding hand craftsmanship with innovative design to create a distinctive piece of art. Crystaleyezed depicts a selection of crystal cut faces around the vase's centre, flanked by intricate geometric shapes, successfully marrying Craig & Karl's signature style with Waterford's traditional artisan approach. 

Waterford was first established in 1783 on land adjacent to Merchants’ Quay in the heart of the Irish harbour town of Waterford. Its founders were two brothers, William and George Penrose, who were important developers and principal exporters in the city. Their vision was to “create the finest quality crystal for drinking vessels and objects of beauty for the home.” More than two hundred years later, the reputation established for creating glass of unsurpassed beauty and quality has transcended the intervening centuries.

About the designers

Specialising in illustration and art direction; Craig Redman and Karl Maier live in different parts of the world (New York and London respectively) but collaborate daily to create bold work that is filled with simple messages executed in a thoughtful and often humorous way. Between them they have exhibited across the world, most notably at the Musée de la Publicité, Louvre, as well as multiple exhibitions at colette, Paris.
