Butterfly and Lilies Wine Glass

Lovely tall red wine glass, engraved with a combination of handheld drill and hand engraving, using a variety of abrasives to obtain the shaded effects.

Unfortunately the glass had been sent to the recipient before I checked the photos I had taken so I was unable to get better photos of the engraving, this photo really does not do the engraving justice.

Check out the Gallery Page to see more examples of my engraving.

NZ Rail Beer Handle

Shaded engraving techniques were used to give the appearance of weaving of the lettering in the NZR logo (inspired by an historic NZ Rail hat badge).  This was engraved for a very dear friend of mine, who is an NZ Rail enthusiast.

All engraving was completed using a hand held drill and a variety of different abrasives.

I just have to share the feedback recieved from the lovely customer who ordered this glass (this is what makes engraving such a pleasure to do):

"My nannoo just rang me in tears! She was so amazed!!! 
She absolutely loves it!!!! Thank you soooo much!!! It bought tears to my eyes hearing her!!"
