Glass etching

Glass is not thought of as a artistic medium. I am not talking about the high end crystal and hand blown glass. I am talking about the stuff your window is made of. It is mostly taken for granted. The first time a bug hit you instead of the windshield that would change. Glass is used in our everyday lives as much as wood and steel. This blog is about using glass for etching.

Glass etching is mostly thought of as a hobby or craft. There are some that say that art is not something that has been done. That is why you see broken light bulbs tied to a used tire and called art. I think of my self more as a master craftsman. I have been at it for awhile now. I started in 1984 right out of high school.

I think glass is the perfect  medium. Painting a picture is all about making the natural lighting look right. The better a artist does at that, the more realistic the painting. Well with glass art, the light and the glass are one. If the light did not create dark shadows, you would not be able to see it at all.

So if you have a window that you think is ugly, I can fix that. This blog is where I will give you ideas and tips for decorating with etched glass. Send me a email if you have a question.
