Due to the popularity of the the Wild Atlantic Way collection Waterford Crystal decided to begin
designing the Ireland’s Ancient East Collection.
The design is created surrounding the history of Ireland and landmarks tourists would see while they follow this tourist initiative, ending in Waterford. This wineglass also hopes to expand to a more youthful demographic with a slightly more simplified pattern and the fact that this wineglass is stemless.
The base pattern stops the two main issues people have with stemless wine glasses. Firstly, this pattern stops fingerprints appearing on the glass, secondly, the tactile design also creates a divide between the hands and the glass, avoiding the hands heating up the wine.
