This vase starts out a blank, clear glass canvas. I begin the carving first with the heart and the outline of the tree, I spend a good time using a round smooth carving stone to create the grain and knots of the trunk, lastly I cut your initials in the heart to for a custom finish!

About the Engraving…Stone wheel engraving is an age old art form of glass engraving that is not commonly practiced in the world today. With newer technologies such as laser engraving, sandblasting, acid etching and machine engraving, stone wheel engraving has become a dying art. As a stone wheel engraver I spend time shaping my wheel using diamond and stone dressing tools to create different effects on glass. Some I create for a smooth surface, some thick and some thin depending on what lettering and designs I’m engraving. The carbundum wheels that cut into the glass with are driven with a belt on a lathe that carries a range of interchangeable spindles. I mount each stone wheel onto these spindles prior to dressing them. As I engrave onto the glassware I make cuts into the glass working by hand both upside down and backwards. I sometimes draw guidelines onto the glass however no stencils or templates are used. There will be variations in the lettering, spacing and designs of stone wheel engraving, this is the beauty and character of the art and the one-of a kind original piece of customized glassware.

Any set in my listings can be altered. If you only want one glass...let me know, if you would like ten let me know. I can create a custom listing to suit your needs. Please don't hesitate to ask!
