About

Etched Glass from Scotland

I etch quality glass, Crystal or optical Crystal, by mostly using a sandblaster adding fine detail by hand with a rotary tool.

For sandblasting I work with stencils, which enables me to cover and uncover the glass, allowing for different depths of glass to be carved.


The painting of the paperweights is tricky: I use a cocktail stick and paint from the underside of the paperweight....and yes this does mean that I have spilt the odd bit of paint on my head as I pick it up to look at it from underneath!


As time goes on I will add some more pictures here of the process
The short film below shows can optical Crystal block which was commissioned for a customers Birthday and has everything meaningful for the lady in question.

I have opened my shop with Glass Paperweights first of all..but I am busy working on some new pieces which i am sure you will like.
