Let’s single out only one decorative technique, explore its demands and scope, and perhaps learn to admire and appreciate the end product. Let’s limit our attention to "cut glass", which must be carefully defined. "Cut glass" is glass that has been decorated entirely by hand by use of rotating wheels. Cuts are made in an otherwise completely smooth surface of the glass by artisans holding and moving the piece against various sized metal or stone wheels, to produce a predetermined pleasing pattern. Cutting may be combined with other decorative techniques, but "cut glass" usually refers to a glass object that has been decorated entirely by cutting.
My favorite pattern name is the "MARCELLA" (1896) probably because of what I was told by Bob Bartley who cut glass he told me that "MARCELLA" was the most difficult pattern* to cut and that he was one of only four crafts-men, sufficiently skilled to execute this pattern at a time when Libbey employed some 200 cutters. Bob said that he pestered Ed Nolan, a co-worker, until Nolan showed him the so-called trick. After learning, Bob claimed it was relativelyhard however, cutters, arelike magicians, would not reveal the trick and would keep it a secret from other craftsmen!
