I'm the 'Glass Guy' and welcome to my site!
Just added: Stage
Carving Video! & Galleries!
These pages contain all sorts of information
and examples of various glass sandblasting techniques.
When I started blasting I found it difficult, at best, to find
information about glass carving (sandblasting) short of a few craft
chat rooms and then I seemed to be the center of attention because,
as someone put, "this stuff is really different" and no
one seems to do much of it.
I love to hear from my visitors! Questions, concerns, thoughts or
comments. I'm always interested in others who are exploring this same
medium, whether you are a beginner, an intermediate or a seasoned
hand. I do my best to answer all e-mail as soon as possible and am
always glad to share what knowledge and experience I have. Whether
your thinking of a new hobby, you have too much money and want to
buy some fun equipment ( ! ) or you're thinking of starting a business
or already have one of your own.
Framing is fun too - but not covered here (yet!).
I've been sandblasting for about twenty five years now, mostly
just dabbling a little in the garage on occasion but I've taken
on some pretty large orders as well as some longer run production
work. I've tried a lot of mediums, some worked, some didn't. I didn't
just stop at glass either. Stone, tile, wood, plastic, brick and
even cement offer some interesting challenges. Eventually, I'd like
to have examples of all these here for you to ponder.
If you're still wondering what glass carving is all about, take
a peek at the galleries. The fish bowl on this page is my wife's
favorite -- it beats cleaning our 55 gallon tank and is a little
less exciting to watch but lots of fun to make! Beautiful and personal
champagne glasses like the one on the right, is a wonderful gift
and easy to do. Of course if you cut too deeply, you end up with
a dribble glass - but they're fun too!
