Designed in the 1960s by Robert Welch, the Serica range of glassware was inspired by eighteenth century tavern glasses which he had drawn at a museum. Originally offered in both cut and uncut crystal. The Airtwist glass range is a beautiful example of English full lead crystal.
All Robert Welch glassware is hand blown. Crafting the Airtwist glassware involves the highest degree of skill on the part of the glassblower. Therefore each individual glass is unique and the finished pieces may differ slightly from one another.
The full Serica range includes a wine glass, champagne flute and a goblet.
The Glassware is hand blown in full lead crystal. Due to the traditional production methods used, minor imperfections may exist.
Care & Need to Know
We recommend hand washing your glassware.

Design Story: Serica
"Full lead crystal glass is a heavy material which naturally forms itself into soft, rounded shapes in working. Before design work began several museums were visited, and studies were made of late eighteenth century English tavern glasses. These, with their robust appearance, suggested the development of a new design. Considerable time was spent in the glass house watching the glass blowers at work, and finally a set of models was made in solid acrylic. These were used as the patterns by the glass blowers". Robert Welch, Designed in a Cotswold Workshop, 1974
