Engraving Techniques
In the course of my career as a full time glass engraver I have used all techniques except diamond point.
In latter years however, I have specialised in cameo engraving using my traditional lathe built around 1870. 
My glass blanks are custom made for me by my daughter Eileen and David Hay
