In designing the Cooper Ale glass for Cashs Crystal, Martin Croke invokes the memory of the craftsmen and the part they played in Waterford Ireland's history.
When the Vikings invaded Waterford they appreciated its strategic value as a major trading port for goods and merchandise, a role it continues to play to this day. A lot of goods both dry and wet were shipped by barrel and a healthy barrel making industry developed in the Waterford area.
Barrel makers or coopers as the trade was known continued their craft right up to the twentieth century before they were overtaken by modern technology.
Two horizontal bands of tight diamond cutting represent the metal hoops that bind a barrel holding it secure. Placed between these are long and short upright cuts denoting the wooden staves from which the barrel is formed.
7 1/2 inches tall. 22 ounces.
