Announcement   I apologize for the lack of newer pieces. The weather here in Florida has been exceptionally hot this summer (even for here) and is always accompanied with very high levels of humidity. Because I carve near our open garage door (for ventilation purposes), I am in the heat and it is just too warm to carve right now. I will however be working on and posting new pieces as soon as possible so please keep checking!

As always, it is my firm policy to communicate with you promptly and as much as is needed from the time you indicate interest in an item until you have received it and are 100% pleased with it.
Thank you so much for visiting Karenskarvings.

The stunning work of this artist is exceptional. As if the dolphins are floating throughout the piece in exquisite peace and tranquility...............just meditating on it is so peaceful.

About

Beyond Etching. That sums up Karenskarvings!

Sitting at the edge of my open garage in Florida (so that I have access to fresh air while I work), I simply love what I do and feel so grateful to be doing it. I have a new respect for glass and love what a simple piece of it can become!
With each piece I carve, I learn.
With each custom order, I get a new idea.
With each new tool I find, I am inspired.
With each "thank you", I am so grateful.
With each animal I research, I am amazed.
With each finished piece, I feel contentment.

To be totally honest, when we lived in Africa and I asked our Kenyan friend to teach me this, I did not dream I would be able to end up doing this kind of work. This technique goes beyond glass etching and uses no creams or sand blasting - it is just me and my rotary tool. For this reason, even if I am using the same image on two different pieces they will never be exactly alike. You will never own something exactly like anyone else's. It is interesting to touch, beautiful to look at and unique to own.

There are two things that are absolutes in my shop.
1. I will not send out a piece that I would not want in my own home.
2. I will communicate with each of my customers clearly, in a timely manner and will do all I can to meet their needs.

I appreciate every single person who has taken the time to look at Karenskarvings.
Thank you.
