THE ART OF CRYSTAL MAKING H A L I FA X SINCE 1996

A LOT OF EFFORT GOES INTO THE CRAFT OF CRYSTAL MAKING.

We are the only makers of mouth-blown, hand-cut crystal in Canada, employing the traditional tools and techniques of European crystal makers. These traditions have been passed down from generation to generation. They were brought to Nova Scotia by a group of Irish immigrants committed to preserving an ancient craft that is disappearing in the world. Since then, ours has become a truly Canadian story of respect for tradition, beauty and fine craftsmanship. Since our founding, we have exemplified high craft and Canadian excellence. Today our pieces are recognized icons of luxury, each one reflecting reverence for the art and craft of its ancient roots. NovaScotian Crystal takes the fine craftsmanship of crystal making and elevates it to the realm of artistry. From the original design to the mouth-blown shape to the hand-cut pattern, every piece is unique and bears the mark of the maker. And when a piece fulfills its purpose in your home, it becomes functional art. Because our crystal is so highly valued, we put as much care into packing and shipping as we put into our crystal. Rest assured, your crystal will arrive safely. For details on all our services, see pages 24-27. In this catalogue, you’ll find just some of our pieces. You can view all our creations in all our patterns at NovaScotianCrystal.com. Better yet, if you’re in the area, come see the real thing at our Glassworks and Showroom on the Halifax Waterfront.

TOOLS OF THE CRAFT B LOW I N G I R O N

A hollow tube made of iron or steel, usually about five feet long, which the blowers use to gather and blow the molten crystal. Blowing irons have a mouthpiece at one end.

P I TC H

A pitch is made of pear wood and soaked in water before it’s used to shape the circular foot at the end of a stem.

ELEMENTS OF THE CRAFT

DIAMOND SHEARS

EARTH

The raw material that goes into our crystal, silica sand, potassium and other trace elements, are a gift from the earth.

Scissors are used to cut off just the right amount of molten crystal required to form the stem or foot of a glass.

JACKS

FIRE

The fiery furnace heats the mixture, called the batch, to a molten liquid that is the colour and texture of lava.

Jacks are lubricated with beeswax and charcoal and used to divide the glass from the bowl to create the stem.

AIR

Our crystal is mouth-blown. The craftsmen’s own breath gives shape to the crystal while it is still in a molten state.

STEM COOLER

WAT E R

A stem cooler is lined with newspaper and soaked in water and used to cool the stem before adding the foot.

Important at almost every step of the craft, water enables the molten crystal to move freely across the wood. It also keeps the glass cool while the diamond wheel cuts the pattern.

B LO C K

A block, made of wood and soaked in water, is the main tool used to shape a piece by hand.

TIMESPAN OF THE CRAFT

DIVIDER

It takes eight to ten years to establish oneself as a master craftsman in the ancient art of crystal making. And a single piece of NovaScotian Crystal can take from three days to three weeks to complete. Throughout the process, it may be handled by no fewer than twelve craftsmen.

A divider is soaked in water before being used to create the ideal thickness of glassware.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

PROCESS OF THE CRAFT

CUTTING

Our pieces are marked with a simple grid to guide the cutter. The pattern itself is fixed in the cutters mind. With the pattern held in the mind, and eyes steering the hand, the cutter leans the piece against a diamond-tipped cutting wheel and applies an even pressure. Patterns are ground into the crystal, one cut at time. Precision is demanded of every cut, and for some of our pieces, that can be several hundred cuts.

P R E PA R AT I O N

Raw materials, the main one being silica sand, are measured and mixed according to our own recipe, or “batch” as it’s called in the Glassworks. The batch is shoveled into the clay pot inside the furnace and melted at 1400 °C. After about 14 hours, the temperature gradually drops. When it reaches 1300°C, the molten batch is ready to work with.

POLISHING

The pieces will have taken on a frosted look in the cuts. To clear the cuts and bring the pieces to their brilliant best, they are hand washed and immersed in a specially prepared solution. The solution removes a fine top layer of crystal, leaving stunning pieces of sparkling, refractive crystal.

B LOW I N G

The craftsman dips a blowing iron into the molten crystal, drawing out just the amount needed. With only moments before the crystal begins to cool and harden, the craftsman blows into the blowing iron, and the piece begins to take shape. The shaping is continued using dividers and blocks. Depending on the piece, a craftsman will then use a pitch, diamond shears, a stem cooler and jacks to craft the stem. The piece must be kept in constant motion in order to maintain its shape while it is still liquid. Once it is cool enough to hold its shape, it is placed in a kiln set at 400 °C. The kiln will gradually, over 12 hours, drop to room temperature.

QUALITY CONTROL

Quality Control isn’t a single step in the process. It is a part of every step. The practiced eyes of our craftsmen examine each piece during every stage of production. Only the pieces that meet our exacting standards will move on to the next stage. After a piece gets its final polish, it will go through a final trial where it is examined for the perfection that has made NovaScotian Crystal a renowned name in the world of crystal. Only after passing this final inspection will our pieces receive our mark of authenticity.

FINISHING

When removed from the kiln, some pieces have an excess of crystal on top from the working process. This cap is removed using a wet diamond saw blade, or cracked off by scoring and applying heat. The rim is then smoothed by grinding on a wet diamond wheel. Inside and outside edges are finished by beveling. We call this stage “finishing,” but the work is far from over.

ORIGINAL CRAFT IN ORIGINAL

DESIGN We keep the craft of crystal making thriving through continuous practice. But also through the life-giving breath of innovation. Our craftsmen have created original, modern designs, many of them inspired by the geography, history and lore of Nova Scotia.

A LOT OF JOY COMES OUT OF THE CRAFT OF CRYSTAL MAKING.

ANNAPOLIS

The curved lines of our Annapolis pattern capture the natural movement of flora and bring life to the crystal itself. Feel the pulse of life when you hold this pattern in your hand.

NovaScotianCrystal.com

CITADEL

The Citadel was an important staging point for troops going overseas in World Wars I and II. The straight, strong cuts of our Citadel pattern reflect this proud military heritage.

LUNA

The moon, the goddess Luna in Roman mythology, is a symbol of balance – a mysterious, feminine counterpoint to the sun. Our pattern evokes Luna in her most opulent form.


DESIGN

The shapes of our pieces are also original. This makes them immediately recognizable as authentic NovaScotian Crystal. We offer six pattern suites: Annapolis, Citadel, Luna, Margaree, Titanic and Windsor. In addition, we have created patterns that are applied to select pieces: Astral, Atlantic, Canadian Spirit, Celebration, Cutters’, Seafarer’s and Wave.

MARGAREE

The Margaree River tumbles out of the Cape Breton Highlands and flows to the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Our pattern marries straight and curved lines to evoke the area’s melded culture of Acadian, Celtic and Indigenous traditions.

TITANIC

Halifax is closely linked to the story of the Titanic. During its short life, the mighty vessel embodied the elegance of the Empire style. Our Titanic pattern was inspired by the light fixtures in the liner’s first class cabins.

WINDSOR

Windsor, Nova Scotia was once a centre for shipbuilding. In our pattern, three upright cuts alternate with a series of arches that harken back to the hulls of barques, brigantines and schooners that once plied the town’s waters.

OUR PURSUIT OF THE PERFECT

STEMWARE

Every piece of stemware represents a supreme challenge, demanding a team of several craftsmen and more than four decades of experience. Each piece is not only created to please the eye, but to perform its given task flawlessly. Each wine style is designed to extract the optimum flavour and bouquet from a particular wine. The pieces designed for a use other than wine are just as functional in their own right. Some of our highest standards of functionality are exemplified in our stemware.
