Quarz' is a series of crystal tumblers representing perfect mathematical quartz prisms. Quarz references the shape and material from which the tumblers are made, as well as the German spelling of the mineral -'Quarz'- relating to Lobmeyr's Austrian roots. Each Quarz tumbler is mouth blown into the same cylindrical wooden mould, then cut at three assorted heights, providing variation in manufactured production. The hand cut and polished hexagonal facets allow an arrangement in a Giant's Causeway type landscape, the fascinating geological phenomenon on the Northern Irish coast renowned for its hexagonal basalt columns. Each glass is engraved with the artist’s initials beside the Lobmeyr sign
