Banovich Art has had a long standing relationship with Queen Lace crystal. From the foot of the Black Forest in Germany, Queen Lace crystal is entirely handblown, hand cut and hand polished by European master craftsmen. It is then engraved with the rare copper-wheel technique developed during the Renaissance. The craft of Copper-Wheel engraving takes 10 years to master and is considered one of the most difficult art forms. Every piece is Hand-Held to one of 50 flying Copper-wheels as each stroke of the design is engraved Into the crystal by hand.
