Evergreen crystal is created through a labor intensive process by artist Lori Coyle. Coyle first sketches each design, then creates at template to be used as a guide for each layer of carving. Each vessel is hand carved, using sand expelled at various speeds and pressures, one layer at a time. After the first layer of design is laid down on a vessel, as second layer is added, and so on, until the multiple level carving achieves a depth that almost makes the vessel come alive. The end stage of each piece is so fine that it is almost like air brushing. This delicate process sets Evergreen Crystal apart from similar products on the market. Sallie Home is proud to carry this prestigious line.
