Custom etched glass
Etched glass is a art form that is produced, in basic terms, by protecting the surface of the glass by applying a protective resist material and then cutting the design out to reveal the design or pattern.
There are several techniques to achieve the desired look, from deep carving, or solid frost, to degrees of shading. A skilled steady hand and trained eye is required to cut out the art work. Only with many years of experience can subtly etched affects be used affectively to create depth and dimension.
