'To engrave glass is to embark on an absorbing and rewarding experience of working with light. The mysterious qualities of glass - a liquid metal caught in a moment of time and requiring both fire and water in the making - appear magical. Glass engravers capture, enhance and celebrate these qualities in their work and endeavour to communicate them to a wider audience'.

The Guild of Glass Engravers was founded in 1975 in order to establish a professional body for this art form. The primary aims of the Guild are to promote the highest standards of creative design and craftsmanship in glass engraving. The Guild acts as a forum for the teaching and discussion of engraving techniques and new developments from around the world as well as acting as a source of information to the public on all aspects of glass engraving and advises the growing number of individuals and institutions wishing to commission work.
Membership is worldwide and open to anyone interested in engraved glass.
