Diamond Bottleneck slides are hand blown crystal slides that are annealed and finished in Great Britain by Ian McGee and his team. Their atelier is located in the historic, world famous ‘glass-quarter’ of the Wordsley / Amblecote area of Stourbridge, England – traditionally known as the ‘spiritual home’ of British glassmaking for over 400 years! Here they have access to a specialist glass restoration & repair ‘cold-work’ workshop where they can utilize the ‘state of the art’ and traditional hand-crafting glassworking (Lapidary) equipment.
At Maple Leaf we’ve ordered both the hand blown crystal slides and the hand cut and shaped bottleneck slides.
