Engraving

Glass engraving is a refining technique for creating very delicate decoration and ornamental patterns using grinding wheels and agents both bound and free. It can be seen as a parallel to wood carving. It excels where the great detail of fine cuts, ornaments, floral and figural motifs, portraits, landscape and town vistas and so on is designed. It works both on crystal clear or coloured glass, both in positive or negative relief. This technique was already known in Mesopotamia and Ancient Rome, mainly as a glyptic technique. Its continuous tradition in the Czech Republic goes all the way to the beginning of 17th century and back then it acquired an outstanding quality that has been maintained ever since. 

Apart from the classical use of engraving, we welcome bespoke projects that allow us to apply this unique technique in the modern context that involves exciting innovations such as incorporated lighting systems and architectual solutions.
