My latest lil' project

I found a piece of broken glass while walking my dogs :) and this is what came up. It is not awesome... But as always, I learnt so much with every lil' piece you make.

RIP Jiří Harcuba

It was posted on facebook that Mr. Harcuba passed away this morning. A very sad day for those who learnt from him and those who love the beautiful art of glass engraving. May he rest in peace.

This is the Corning Museum of glass page on Mr. Harcuba

Please take a moment in the name of this wonderful artist. Thank you.

Granite Portrait Engraving by hand

I know I KNOW it is not glass but one can take a look and get the idea of shades and how to use it. Enjoy! I promise to be back this month with a lot more posts. Let me know what you would like to see.
