Richard E. Gaudreau's Profile

About

    We do Traditional Hand Engraving using small like chisels into metal. In years past hand engraving was the primary form of engraving. Beautiful hand engraved pocket watches, jewelry and gift ware have left us with a history of items that can be found in museums around the world. Unlike today's modern machine engraving, hand engraving creates a timeless heirloom your family will enjoy for generations. Hand engravers are a rare breed of artist and only a select few are capable of doing an engraving of “pictures” on a metal surface, which makes the artist a Master Engraver. This process of learning hand engraving takes years and years of practice. The art is almost extinct as a result of less and less master engravers left. Richard has been engraving for 60 years and my son, Adam for 15 yrs. He started learning at the age of 8.
