Angle view etched iris glass design by ImaginedGlass Angle view etched iris glass design by ImaginedGlass
A side angle of the iris showing the depth of the image. over all size is 8" x 7 1/2" x 1 3/4" and the glass plates are 6" x 6" x 1/8". The oak wood base is a simple design that helps keep focus on the glass and shows most of the edging.

A simple image, yet effective in its form.

Your more than welcome, combination of amazing craftmanship and subtle design. Have no idea about the process, this is magic to me right now!

If you want to get a general overview of the process, here is a link to a blog post I had done a while back using the Celtic Spiral coaster as an example. [link]

So the aluminum oxide grit basically carves it out of a stencil onto the glass? It looks like a much simpler process than I imagined, must take alot of precision and patience.

Yes, that's how it generally goes (hope I didn't ruin the magic too much ;)). There are other techniques and hand cutting the mask, using various masks and materials, and such that can be incorporated. It just depends on the piece and the situation, cost factors, etc.

I don't do the drill or wheel engraving, though I'd like to add that to some of the detailing eventually. There are a lot of different ways to scratch up glass in an artistic manner.

In a way it's more magical now, there's something about the fact that the process is so UNelegant compared to the finished product. I bet it's a very satisfying process when all goes to plan, and I bet the photos dn't do the 3d effect any justice.

I'm glad that it holds that imagery for you. And, yes, it is hard to photograph the full effect. I have a couple videos on Flickr (repeated on FB) that also doesn't show it that well in comparison, but it at least gives an added depth to how it looks and feels moving it about in your hands.
