Shamrock Collection

Shamrock Collection

The Taoiseach's office selected Criostal na Rinne to make the Irish crystal shamrock bowl which was presented to the US President as part of the annual St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the White House. The tradition of the shamrock presentation ceremony stretches back over 60 years to the 1950's, with the first Waterford Crystal bowl carrying the shamrock presented to President John F. Kennedy in the early 1960's.

To celebrate this prestigious commission Criostal na Rinne has released the Shamrock Collection, a range of Irish crystal glassware based on the Shamrock Bowl design.

Eamonn Terry started his career in Waterford Crystal where he became a master craftsman glass cutter before starting his own crystal craft studio, Criostal na Rinne, in the Waterford Gaeltacht of An Rinn. Eamonn's design for the collection is inspired by the artwork from the Book of Kells, one of Ireland’s greatest cultural treasures.

The principal design pattern is a series of deep intersecting Trinity knots, an iconic symbol of Ireland. Handcut shamrocks are cut into panels around the piece in tribute to the collection's origins. Rosette cuts are interspaced around the Shamrock to frame the Shamrock and Trinity knot motifs. Near the base interwoven Celtic lace cuts represent the strong ties between Ireland and the United States of America.

This unique mouthblown and handcut Irish crystal bowl from Co. Waterford would make an excellent wedding gift or addition to your own Irish crystal collection.
