Replacements, Ltd. welcomes world renowned Waterford Crystal Artisan
GREENSBORO, N.C., April 6, 2007 – From intricate vases to PGA golf trophies to the Waterford Crystal Ball dropped New Year’s Eve in Times Square, one can see Tom Power’s mark all over the crystal world. Now you have the chance to watch this Master Cutter in action coming up Thursday, May 3, at Replacements, Ltd.
Power began his career with Waterford Crystal as an apprentice Wedge Cutter nearly 38 years ago. Wedge cutting is most often used for the more intricate designs cut into Waterford crystal. Deeper wedge cuts result in prisms that scatter light and increase intense reflection; most are made using a single uninterrupted motion of the hand. A Master Wedge Cutter uses his intuition and sight to determine the depth and exact location of these eye catching cuts. Power currently works in Waterford’s ‘Special Department’ where he is responsible for creating many one-of-a-kind pieces destined to grace the display cabinet of many high achievers in the sports, politics and business fields.
Power will demonstrate his craft, meet customers and sign Waterford pieces from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 3. Replacements, Ltd. is located at 1089 Knox Road, McLeansville, NC.
