I start with the photograph that you have chosen of your pet that best captures their personality. I then prepare the glass and freehand the design onto a glass panel with a specially designed pen. I am able to work from any photo, however the clearer it is the more detail I can engrave into the finished artwork.
The next step is the hand engraving process. Using diamond burrs and a rotary drill, I engrave the glass to create my artistic representation of your pet. Shading and highlighting help me to bring your pet engraving to life.
The engraving process is completed entirely by hand without the use of computers, stencils, sand blasting or lasers. It is a bespoke piece of art.
The finished engraving is cleaned and framed within your choice of frame. I engrave on the back of the glass which protects the engraving from the environment and prolongs the life of the piece. The finished glass pet portrait can be displayed centre stage on a wall or flat surface,the choice is yours.
