Concept

Quartz sand is the main raw material for glass production. A quartz crystal that grows in an uninhibited space will form a perfect hexagonal prism.
'Quarz' is a series of crystal tumblers representing perfect mathematical quartz prisms. Quarz references the shape and material from which the tumblers are made, as well as the German spelling of the mineral -'Quarz'- relating to Lobmeyr's Austrian roots. The hand cut and polished hexagonal facets allow an arrangement in a Giant's Causeway type landscape, the fascinating geological phenomenon on the Northern Irish coast renowned for its hexagonal basalt columns. Each glass is engraved with the artist’s initials beside the Lobmeyr sign.
