Etched-Blue-Wine-Bottle-Love-Thank-You-Snowflake
Finished up some etching on a few blue wine bottles sent to me by a client.  She asked to have irregularly shaped crystal snowflakes with the words 'Love' and 'Thank you'.  The camera pulled out the contrast in the image compared to them being more subtle when viewed in person.  Dark surfaces like this tend to give less options when it comes to adding shading and taking care in the depth of the carving.

East-Canton-OH-Etched Glass-Hornet-Logo-Window-Gla
Etched glass door I donated for the East Canton Village Park's new concession stand.  The first stage I gave a soft shading over the entire window and then masked it off with the resist.  The glass is carved on the reverse side and then painted in two layers.  The Hornets Snack Shack had a lot of great people helping out and volunteering time and effort.  It's going to be a fun season of softball, baseball, and anything else busy at the park!

Etched Art Glass NC First Sergeant Award Gift
Being contacted by someone at the North Carolina Highway Patrol would in certain circumstances would make me nervous.  However, this time I was lucky to be asked to create a special gift for the First Sergeant that was leaving.  So, I designed a set of glass panels from the suggested symbols and decided to create a box to display them in the round.

The carved glass is etched in multiple stages.  The overall measurements are approximately 5 1/2" W x 9" H x 3 1/2" D.  The four sides consist of the NC First Sergeant's badge on the front, to the left is his state patch, to the right is the stripes patch, and the back is the patriotic American flag.  The core of the box was painted a gloss black which really helps the sandblasting stand out, especially when the light comes in from the edges.

Please "like" me on my Imagined Glass FB Page. There's a few vids, including one that has the Gear Mechanism paperweight. Gives a little better idea of it's depth.

I also work for a stained glass company, Radiant Arts, Inc., which we do windows all over the country (even outside of the USA - especially if you want to flip the bill for our flight and accommodations :)).

In my gallery are some examples of the designs I've done personally from the artwork, painting and firing the glass, to fabrication.

Hello. Sorry I hadn't gotten back to this, but I was away for a while out of town.

Things are going alright. Lacking some motivation to get anything done. I have a list of things to work on and get done soon.

Otherwise, I have the day to day stuff with family, etc. Kids seem to keep growing and more running them around places then.

How about things with you? Anything amazing happening or in the works?

Things aren't too bad here other than my laptop isn't working. Need to buy a new updated comp. Always a pain when things just stop doing what they're supposed to do.

And, what about with you?

It's not really late, but to me timely in having a thoughtful reply to my artwork - and a boost in motivation. Thank you.

I added a +watch because I wanted to make sure I keep in touch of how you are and how your own art develops, too.

Have a great day!
