Replacements, Ltd. Welcomes World Renowned
Waterford Crystal Master Glass Cutter

GREENSBORO, N.C., April 9, 2010 – Replacements, Ltd. is proud to welcome Waterford Crystal Master Cutter Vincent Rellis for a rare opportunity to sign Waterford pieces and meet customers on Saturday, May 1, 2010. Rellis is traveling from Ireland for a limited number of appearances in the United States.

Working for the famous Irish crystal company continues a family tradition for Rellis. His father and many of his siblings also worked for Waterford. Rellis began his career after the age of 15 as an apprentice in the craft of Rheintour or “flat cutting”. This technique is especially difficult on the stems of wine glasses because the cuts must be symmetrically placed around each stem. Waterford Crystal has designed suites based entirely on these flat cuts such as Curraghmore and the Royal Tara, inspired by 19th century Waterford Designs.

Replacements welcomes the public to meet Rellis from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Rellis will sign classic Waterford pieces purchased at Replacements, including two vases from Waterford’s ‘Grainne’ pattern sold exclusively for the signing event. Replacements, Ltd. is located just off I-40/I-85 (exit 132) at 1089 Knox Road, McLeansville, N.C.
