Jerpoint candleholder 17cm

Jerpoint candleholder 17cm
Jerpoint glass is made at Stoneyford, Co. Kilkenny employing the techniques and type of hand tools that have been used in glassmaking for many centuries. Keith Leadbetter, who trained in Sweden at the famous Orrefors Glass School, established his own workshop in the Irish countryside in 1978. He works with a team of ten skilled glassblowers. Each glass is individually blown and shaped from red-hot molten glass and finished by hand. Sizes and shapes may vary slightly; this is part of their charm.

The Designer

Keith Leadbetter initially worked in pottery and in laboratory glass blowing in the UK. In the late sixties, he attended the prestigious Orrefors Glass School in Sweden to formally train as a master glassblower. After travelling extensively throughout Europe to develop his skills as a glass maker, Keith returned to Ireland and with his wife Kathleen started Jerpoint Glass Studio in December of 1979, from the converted Dutch barn at their home in Co. Kilkenny. Their skill and passion for glass has now been passed onto their four children, who are all actively involved in the business.
