Art aficionados applaud the superb craftsmanship and distinguished artistry found inherent in every piece of Varga Art Crystal. From the Varga design studios and forty person glassworks in Budapest, Hungary, famous husband and wife team Ildikó and Sándor Varga – a third generation glass master – create crystal artwork that graces palaces, embassies, museums and celebrity homes around the globe. Each piece of Varga is an original – skillfully and creatively crafted entirely by hand. Each hand-cut stem or intricately engraved crystal masterpiece is individually signed by hand and may require months to craft. Imagine an artist moving his canvas against a fixed brush to create his masterpiece: this is the essence of the rare art of copper and diamond-wheel engraving that is practiced today only by a handful of highly skilled craftsmen.
