Custom etching

Welcome to another blog, it has been a busy few weeks and I've Been doing some interesting work .

Brett has built himself an outdoor entertainment area with a club lounge feel to it and had this glassware and door plaque made to make that picture complete.

The men and women of the survival equipment training section at HMAS Cerberus made this award for a commanding officer that was leaving and had me make this brass plate for it. It was done by electrolytic etching then paint filled and polished.

Tony and his mates had these stubby coolers etched for a racing trip to NZ.

Bobs mate Tom had this plaque made to celebrate Bob's 90th birthday with a bit of humour. Congratulations to Bob for continuing to breathe for that length of time.

Meniere's Australia were looking for something special for this award and commissioned this handmade etched glass plate with a handmade aluminium stand.

Thanks for viewing todays blog and merry christmas to all of you

Gifts and Personalisation

This year when you are thinking about gifts for those that you love, think outside the box. One of the best ways to let your friends and family know that you are truly thinking about them , not crossing names off gift lists, is to get them a personalised gift. These can be mundane items that have had a relavent picture or saying etched or engraved on it , such as a wine glass that says Mother's Little Helper, or something of great value that they desire , embellished in a personal way.

A few gift ideas

Welcome to my first blog.
Etching is an amazingly versatile process and I thought that a little gallery would be the best way to start blogging.
I have been etching about 4 years now and have had the shop for 2years.
