Who is City of Derry Crystal?
We are one of the few companies left in Ireland, who still hand cut crystal. Offering a number of different and bespoke designs, you truly can have a completely unique product.
City of Derry Crystal
City of Derry Crystal was established in 1991 by a master cutter and engraver who previously worked for Waterford Crystal. I am Michael Bond and I bought City of Derry Crystal in 1994 and my son, Kevin, joined me in the business in 2003. Kevin, after he left college, went to work for Waterford Crystal, where he was trained in glass cutting.
City of Derry Crystal is situated in the beautiful Derry City Craft Village, which you can take a virtual tour of. It's well worth a visit, particularly in the summer months, when there are informal music sessions in the square. There are many other talented crafts people trading in The Village too.
My Previous Life
Prior to buying City of Derry Crystal, I ran a business which produced plastic stationery products by high frequency welding. We made ring binders, cheque book covers and similar products. A part of the business also engraved windows, in particular for Hotels and Public Houses - and that's how I got into the business of glass engraving.
