Handmade and Hand cut crystal boxes. Everything starts with the slowly-evolving design, which is passed on to the crystal glass works. A wooden mold is then made, around which the desired shape will be blown by mouth, in crystal with a lead content varying between 24 and 30% depending on requirements. In the workshop, Franck Benito traces the main lines of the sculpture onto the uncut form.
Where does crystal get its colour?
For color pieces, the initial form, always blown in « white » crystal, is covered, whilst hot, in a thin, extra? layer of crystal colored with pigment. Then it is cut like other pieces, sometimes only retaining some cabochons, medallions or facets.
