On the left is St Michael's Cathedral (1918-1940) formerly the 14th century St Michaels parish church till elevated to cathedral status at the end of the First World War, the "War to end all wars", but destroyed by German incendiaries a mere 22 years later. The site also contained the Triumph Motorcycle factory also destroyed that night in November 1940. A great competition was held as part of the postwar rebuilding of the ruined city and Basil Spence was announced the winner in 1950, he opted not to restore the old one, but retain it as a memorial and build a new one alongside on the site of the former motorcycle works. Over the following 12 years a group of artist was assembled, Graham Sutherland (tapestries) Jacob Epstein (Sculpture) and John Hutton (Glass etchings) amongst many others, the results (along with a brand new railway station to get visitors into the city) where unvield at the consecration in May 1962 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Glass Etching on Tumblers

Yes folks, the shadowy figure in the bottom right is your very own Kewelldude. The hat as you can see is real and not just a prop.


This glass etching is in Dumbo in Brooklyn and is quite famous as it shows the view of Manhattan from across the East River.


It hangs in a lovely eatery and the work was commissioned and finally installed in its present location late on the night of 10th September 2001, the day before the twin towers came down.


It remains as a permanent tribute.

On display this Saturday at the Bush Room, MIT (free and open to the public) for MIT's open house from 11AM to 4PM.


Please drop by and see what we've been working on the past two months!


The Hobby Shop will also be open to visitors from 11AM to 4PM. Ken and I won't be at the Bush Room but we will be at the hobby shop, so that's where to bring the giant bottle of wine you will be bringing.

Something went wrong... too much sanding and bad etching results. TSMCs 16-nm-FinFET process is very sensitive to etching. The 28 nm process, on the other hand, is very resistant to etching with glass etching cream. It can not always run like clockwork :-\

Tatton park memorial to those who served in the First World War.


The beautifully designed glasswork around the Commemorative Flame, by Alex Blakey ( ), at Tatton Park, has WW1 archive photographs etched into each panel (The image in this panel seems to be depicting the soldier shielding his eyes as he would not be saluting with his left hand).


The words on this panel are by John Maxwell Edmonds;


"When you go home, tell them of us and say,

For your tomorrows these gave their today."

Always appropriate words for this time of the year I feel.

This is a cropped macro shot made from a small crystal tray with the Mobil Pegasus etched on the bottom. I propped it up facing north window light. Somehow it turned blue-ish and I left it that way. A 50 cent piece would cover the Pegasus.

Happy Textural Tuesday ;o)

Shot yesterday - it looks like the finest etching on glass, produced by a world-class etcher. A simple photo of the ice formation on the car windscreen! 10 minutes later it had all melted! Nature really is the ultimate artist ;o)

My Textural Tuesday set here: Elisa Textural Tuesday

This time I used a highball glass from my crystal. I am amazed at how clear it is, as it was really hard getting the camera to focus on the etching on the glass and not beyond it. I took 80 photos today and kept 3...not good odds :-))

I agree with the sentiments; the local bus shelter has been badly disfigured by morons scratching their names into the glass.

I don't think they helped their case by misspelling Graffiti and Tattoo.

We've enjoyed a few warm days and all of Jack Frost's crystal artwork has disappeared. I'm glad I saved a few for days like ice and no birds in my neck of the woods.


Best viewed large.

Even though I helped a bit, the author of this etching is Afsaneh Nabifar.

i'll be off for a couple of weeks.

see you in early july. enjoy world cup!!

A part of the Maria Window - one of the largest glass etchings in the world. Designed by artist Lisa Bauer who worked with the etcher Lars Börnesson. The Maria Window in Linköping Cathedral was inaugurated in 1998.

It is the young Mary, the expectant mother, dressed in a robe of flowers associated with her name.

The North Gregory Hotel which opened in June 1879, was the town's second licensed hotel building. The original hotel was pulled down and rebuilt as a two-storey hotel in 1899. This second hotel was destroyed by fire in 1916 when other building in the block were damaged, including the Corfield and Fitzmaurice Store. The hotel was rebuilt but born down again in 1946.


Religion came to Winton in 1882, when a clergyman of the Church of England held the first service at the North Gregory Hotel. He created a suitable atmosphere, so the story goes, by draping a blue blanket over a billiard table and a red one over the cue rack. The kitchen bell was rung at the start of the service and the Chinese cook, an enthusiastic gambler, was hard to exclaim, ""Waffor? Norther laffle? All Li. Put me down a pound."


Waltzing Matilda is believed to have had its first public performance at the North Gregory Hotel in 1895.


The present building remains a testimony to the foresight of a dedicated group of people who believed Winton had a future at a time when all signs seemed to indicate the contrary.


The 1946 fire, coinciding with the drought year, sapped the resolve of many business people to start again. The population dropped from 3500 to 1600 and civic pride was hard to find. The Shire Council surveyed the ratepayers looking for ideas to revitalise the town. It was decided the Council should rebuild and take over as licensee of the North Gregory Hotel.


Through a special levy on the local rates and a treasury loan, possible through a special act of parliament, sufficient money was raised to complete the modern brick building. To add the finishing touches that reflected Winton's history, sculptor Daphne Mayo designed three sand-blasted glass etchings for use on several of the interior doors. The scenes depicted "Waltzing Matilda" swagman, the district's primary industries and QANTAS.


The opening of the new North Gregory Hotel in 1955 revitalised the town and encouraged local business people to rebuild and even expand their operations. The hotel was set up in the grand tradition with bellboys, receptionists and full linen and silver service dining facilities.


In 1990, the Council sold the hotel to private enterprise.

Charles Parsons 1854-1931. Inventor of the steam turbine. Glass etching detail by John Rothwell at County Hall, Morpeth.

The glass etching set as a window in a stone at the base of Ben Lawers, highlighting the flowers, plants and environment of the local nature reserve area.


This is with early morning natural light shining through the glass (with a bit of contrast adjustment and monochrome conversion).

One of them is a stained glass from one of the museum trams, but the rest are etchings with dust all over them from 377.

This glass combines ancient Japanese craftsmanship with the Star Wars universe. Produced by Kotobukiya it is one of the most unique Star Wars exclusives out there. Originally found at Star Wars Celebration IV in Los Angeles the glass was made with a traditional Japanese glass etching technique, known as Kiriko. Kiriko has been in existence since 1824, when artisans first began experimenting with emery powder to produce glassware engraved with patterns. As Kiriko developed during the mid-19th century, the craft went through many revisions, such as utilizing new equipment introduced from the west, while still retaining the time-honored Japanese techniques utilized until this day. In 1985, Kiriko was designated a Traditional Craft Industry by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. Stipulations to qualify as a Traditional Craft Industry are as follows: the main process of manufacturing must require expert manual skills, the history of the techniques used must date back at least a century, and the craft must use traditional materials. Kotobukiya has taken the Kiriko technique and blasted it to Tatooine, with this R2-D2 KIRIKO GLASS. It's a 10oz whisky style glass and is hand etched at different levels, taking the pattern of R2-D2's droid body and transforming it into a work of art. You can easily feel the deep engravings when holding the two-toned frosted texture glass in your hands. Due to the complex production involved in creating this glassware, only a small quantity were ever made.

It took me sooooooo much time to complete this swap - shame on me... :)


For this piece I used self made stencils and some glass etching cream. It wasn't easy to cut all the letters but it came out quite well :)

Glass etching by John Rothwell at County Hall Morpeth. Lancelot "Capability" Brown was the leading landscape artist of his generation and his work can be seen throughout the country today.

Can't even explain this...

Not even sure it is finished...


It's an etching combined with a photo, made on glass with additional glass and glass stones.

A rare example of a poem sketched into glass.


"Fanny, ye pride of nature's beauteous Powers.

Her sexes Envy, and ye Pride of Ours,

Regardless triumphs in a world of Charms,

Wins ev'ry eye and ev'ry heart Alarms.

Whenever she sings 'tis heaven to be near,

Words sweet as honey charm ye ravish'd Ear.

We stand attentive to her tuneful tongue,

As wondering Syrens when a Sapho Sung.



I think the glass etching is one of my favorite things to do with my silhouette. I added small LED lights inside the glass block and also use silver rub & buff on the etched part of the glass.

Pond lily lamp with 10 green shades, by Tiffany & Co. On display at the Cleveland Museum of Art in Cleveland, Ohio, in the United States.


This Art Nouveau lamp, made of favrile glass and bronze, was made some time between 1902 and 1910.


Favrile glass is an "art glass" (glass made for objects, not to see through) developed by Louis Comfort Tiffany in 1894 and first produced for manufacture in 1896.


The Tiffany family was quite wealthy. Tiffany's grand-father, Comfort Tiffany, owned a cotton mill and general store in Connecticut. Tiffany's father, Charles Tiffany, co-founded in 1837 Tiffany and Young, a stationery and gift shop in New York City. The firm shifted into clocks, cutlery, glassware, jewelry, and porcelain. It shifted into fine art home goods (particularly glass, jewelry, and porcelain) in 1841 and changed its name to Tiffany, Young and Ellis. It reorganized as Tiffany & Co. in 1850.


Like most wealthy young Americans, Louis Comfort Tiffany made a Grand Tour of Europe to study architecture, art, and culture when he was 17. In London, he was particularly impressed with the Roman and Syrian iridescent glass and medieval stained glass he saw at the South Kensington Museum (later renamed the Victoria and Albert Museum).


At the time, nearly all colored glass was painted in some way. Color could be applied while the glass was still hot, impregnating the surface slightly, or it could be applied after the glass was cool. This glass was not very luminous (seeming to glow from within), nor was it iridescent (e.g., the color did not seem to change when seen from different angles). Hot-painted glass tended to lose its color over time, and cool-painted glass could flake and become clear. Artists were limited in the colors they could use, because not all pigments would bond to glass.


In 1875, Tiffany began experimenting with new ways of coloring glass. He hit upon the idea of mixing metallic oxides with molten glass, a process that infused color throughout the glass -- deepening the color. Oxides also greatly expanded the range of color which could be produced. Combined with other glass-making and glass-etching techniques, Tiffany was able to create a luxurious iridescent surface effect.


Tiffany called this glass "Fabrile", an Old English word meaning "hand-wrought". He later changed the word to Favrile, "since this sounded better".


Tiffany first used Favrile glass in stained-glass windows, and later greatly expanded its use to a wide range of products. His Favrile glass won the Grand Prize at the 1900 Paris Exposition.

The C is done with glass etching cream on the back of the glass and Coleson is vinyl on the front with scrapbook paper in the background.
