Contemporary Glass Engraver and Gilder   

ARTIST STATEMENT 

These optical crystal sculptures have been wheel and drill engraved using diamonds and stones  and gilded with precious metal leaf.

The figurative drawings are from my imagination, but informed  by my first career as a scientific and medical illustrator.

I have developed my signature technique of  inscribed metal leaf after several years of experimentation, and this fragile decoration has been  lacquered for protection.
