I am an IT man who discovered engraving 30 years ago. A keen appetite for experiments which succeed about half the time. After joining the guild of glass engravers I won the glass sellers trophy for best first entry 1987. In 2008 an award for choice piece in the annual exhibition.

Joined CGS a few years ago

My preference is deep cutting with unusual shapes or solid blocks. I like to find designs that will make the most of the empty shape and color.

Engraving Techniques with Flexible drive and sandblast; often combined for effect. Occasional stipple work. I do not have time to do regular commissions but hope to have the opportunity later.
