Peter Wayne Yenawine, the world's foremost designer of corporate gifts, has designed this exclusive Pete de Verre collection. His designs have been produced by major crystalleries and art glass houses. Collections of Yenawine designs reside in many corporate headquarters and museums throughout the world.
This high quality Optical Crystal Rectangular Block features a Roman Corinthian Design made in Pete de Verre through the "lost wax" technique. This French, glass casting technique, is a very complex and time-consuming process requiring abundant skill. It produces an unique transluceny and texture that can not be achieved with blown or molded glass.
The overall inspiration was to create works of art that could be personalized for presentation recognizing outstanding achievement, leadership, integrity, responsibility, sales and promoting the corporate culture. All of the works of art in this collection have considered personalization as a major parameter in their creation. Therefore, whether you simply select a piece and present it as a work of art, or completely personalize it or a particular corporation, occasion, or milestone, it is assured to be treasured by the recipient for generations.

Among the finest of all crystal, our collection in made from the highest quality raw materials available resulting in absolutely clear and flawless crystal. Optical crystal is manufactured in large sheets then pressed under enormous pressure to ensure it has no bubbles or distortions. Our optical crystal awards are made from the same materials used in camera lenses, NASA telescopes and high-end visual equipment. Unlike Lead Crystal, optical crystal is lead free which is perfect for all kinds of engraving methods though we choose to sand blast, which provides the highest quality etch. Each piece is hand polished and beveled to perfection to achieve a mystical refraction. Clear, black, blue, pink, green and amber accents are also used in our Optical Crystal Awards and Gifts collection for a more contemporary design.
Etching is the roughening of a selected area by directing a high pressure, high speed stream at the surface of the glass/crystal. As the grains of abrasive hit the selected area, a "frosted" effect is produced. This imprint method gives your personalization more depth and greater dimension.
