Unique crystal objects handcrafted by our glass masters, by press, injection, blown or freehand, jacketed (in two or three colors), Lalique relief processing
“Combining automation with craftsmanship is our most important intuition. Technology can be copied and abroad they often know how to do it very well, but knowing how to do it by hand cannot.
We produce and market all types of blown glass and crystal and we have been awarded for the technologies we use and for the research, given that we are about to patent a crystal that has no or almost no lead content (notoriously harmful, ed.). Important laboratory tests on this front are still underway to create an increasingly green and recyclable product.”
From Dust to Crystal – it all starts from a number of raw materials made dust
Nuova CEV’s history dates back to 1945. The company, based in Empoli, Tuscany, started with plain glass and is now specialized in their trademark opaline glass. Abandoning mass production in 1987, Nuova CEV prides itself on its wholly handmade production practices. Transitioning from mass production to small-scale, quality production was a rewarding choice, one that values the expertise of their master glassmakers and engravers and that has catalyzed the interest of younger generations to keep this ancient craft alive.
