Meet The Artist
"When I'm designing a new pattern or etching a glass, I like to think about the person it will end up with. I hope that it will speak to them in some way, whether to their quirky, creative side, to their inner geek, or to a special moment in their lives. Most of all, I hope that it brings them a moment of joy every time they take it off the shelf."
Once I have my idea and a clean design, I create the art by carving a block of rubber or linoleum and making an inkprint. I bring that print into the digital realm on my tablet and edit it to make a pattern for cut vinyl sandblast resist.
The resist is applied to each glass and the design is 'weeded' to expose areas to be etched.
Next, I use pressurized air and an extremely hard, fine grit (no lasers, I'm old school!) to carve the exposed areas of each individual glass.
After a thorough clean and polish, they are ready for a prime spot in your cabinet. Cheers!
