Crystal Time is the love story between two companies with roots combining a mid-19th century birth with a Czech-born founder: Czapek and Moser Glassworks.
It began with the idea of exploring the concept of the beauty of time. The initial thought of producing a collection of crystal clocks blossomed into a collaboration resulting on their first creation: an hourglass, a pure, original and refined product. And this could be just the beginning…
The silica crystals (Si O₂) in their purest form, quartz, which Moser is famous for and remains among the very few to use it in the world, is used to create the Sands of Time crystal. A combination of oxides are used to colour it, which is not leaded and therefore ecologically sound. The base mixture is then fired, melted into enamel, and then cast into hand-crafted wooden moulds.
The object is shaped by air blown by Moser’s skilled Masters and then carefully polished multiple times to get the highest gloss. This requires incredible skills and a century old know-how.
