Lee Broom launches his debut collection of glassware entitled 'Half Cut', to be sold in the UK exclusively at Liberty. 'Half Cut' intergrates the unused crystal stoppers from Broom’s Decanterlight collection which have been gathered over the years.
The decanter stoppers have been transformed into bases of the glassware for this stunning three-piece collection, serving both as a functional and decorative element for each glass. The original decanters are individually sourced from antique markets and shops throughout London making each stopper and therefore each glass entirely unique. Each stopper is polished, cut and then fused with a hand blown lead crystal vessel which forms the glass and etched on the bottom with the signature Lee Broom crest.
Lee Broom says of the new collection, “With each vintage drinks decanter that is purchased to create our Decanterlight range, there is always a crystal stopper. These little gems have been gathering dust in our warehouse for years whilst I have been considering unique ways in which to re use them. I am delighted that we can finally release this collection, which reinterprets an everyday object while infusing it with a sense of heritage and craftsmanship.”
The Half Cut collaboration is now sold out. A new production version of the champagne coupe and wine glass is now available - Half Cut
