Martino is a favourite of ours at Makers & Brothers. In this short video he muses gently about his Cuttings series for J. Hills Standard. Weighty and tactile works of primitive elegance with deep cuts that go far beyond the usual and in doing so create something simple yet sophisticate.

J. Hill’s is a fresh and exciting new Irish crystal company that is making cut crystal vital and relevant again. A company working with a centuries-old craft, looking forward and not dwelling on a nearly lost craftsmanship but actively figuring out ways to reinvigorate them in the best possible way. We greatly admire their intent, the local engagement and global outlook.

Click and watch the video above, they are only getting started.

The Cuttings series is available here.
