Description

The art of making lithophanes date back to the early 15th century China, but also made a big appearance in France during the 1800's. Over time, the skill of making liphophanes was shared around the world. Porcelain and other materials with similar properties were used because it was found that these materials of different thickness, allowed various levels of light to pass through. Artisans used their wonderful skills and countless hours to hand carve the image of a person or object into the material. When the piece was complete, they were usually displayed with candles behind the lithophane or as a decorative and translucent window into a room, but with a beautiful and artistic touch.

Today, lithophanes can be produced in modern day materials with similar qualities, taking advantage of amazingly accurate CNC technology. At The Crafts Man, we offer you the opportunity to turn your favorite and priceless photos into a solid, durable, beautiful work of art that can last many lifetimes.

Not every photo qualifies to be converted into a lithophane. But, we will work with you to choose the best possible photo or computer enhancements to make a lower quality photo work better.

Order a lithophane and allow our technology to turn those photo's into a beautiful work of art that you can display almost anywhere and for generations.
