  • Hand Cutting

    When Susquehanna Glass opened its doors in 1910, the basis of the business was in the hand cutting of glassware. Master glass artisans painstakingly hand cut designs into finished glass pieces by holding the glass against a large belt-driven, rotating stone wheel. The result was beautiful hand cut patterns or monograms.

    Today, this process remains largely unchanged.

    Susquehanna Glass offers over a hundred different hand cut patterns, as well as several font options for single and triple letter monograms. This freehand craftsmanship makes each piece a true original. No machine can truly duplicate the work of a master craftsman whose steady hand and trained eye practice the precise and difficult art of glass cutting.

    Susquehanna Glass is one of the last remaining American factories practicing the art of hand-cut glass.
