The Guild provides an insight into contemporary Glass Engraving. It aims to promote the highest standards of glass engraving.The website contains techniques, a gallery of members engraved glass, where to see it and where to learn to engrave.
Born in 1959 and at an early age I was exploring painting in oils and winning art prizes at Primary School. I have been Glass Engraving since 1975 and am self taught.
I engrave to customers specifications and time limits, usually completing the commision as and when required.
I focus on using Stipple and Drill Engraving, often combining the two for effect.
I am also learning to engrave using an antique copper wheel lathe, and enjoying it.
