to high quality glass engraving where our emphasis is the Western United States, its customs, the natural beauty, animals and birds, the people and its wonderful history. As native sons of the American West, we add our craftsmanship, quality glass engraved products to our customers' desire for high quality and unusual glass art.
We have enjoyed long standing international reputations for excellent calligraphic skills and emphasis with our art on glass and crystal. No template is used for any of our work.
The quality of the glass engraved will vary from crystal to the tougher glass that each of us may see each day.
Considerable time has been spent on each piece to make certain it meets the highest standards.
What is the difference between "hand engraved glass and other glass art"? Hand engraved glass uses only carbide burs, stones, diamond burs, and polishers of many kinds. There is no sand blasting, pastes, creams or laser engraving on our glass. It is strictly hand engraved with a Foredom or Dental Drill.
Should you have a particular need for a special subject, we are happy to discuss with your specific requirements to avoid any possible errors on either your part or our part.
We are up at the world famous Sundance Festival with thousands of skiers and wannabes who are out having a good time and celebrating. Many folks stopped by to get a chalice filled with their beverage of choice, Stella Artois, visit with friends and await the viewing of the movies that are yet to be. We were able to engrave with Ms. Akoko Okeyo from southern California! Great to meet her and see her great work!
You can see that we had to take the ski lift to get up to the Stella Artois designated area on the side of a mountain with hundreds of skiers all around us. We were able to do the engraving on a Stella Artois chalice for the many skiers and other folks who had just come down the mountain side on a very cold snowy and cold day!
