Engraving Techniques
My favourite techniques are:
copper wheel engraving, diamond, stone... emery paper, sandstone, hammer, sandblasting, flexible drive,
anything... :) and cold-bonding (my engravings are "floating" in the glass)... I work with overlaid (flat or hollow) or clear glass as well as optical lenses...  I love doing experiments with our wonderful technique, I try to combine it with different materials,... seen here:
