Design/Etch By Richard Smith

Welcome to my website... Since the early 1980's I have been engraving and etching glass and mirror panels. I am continually fascinated with the seemingly limitless potential that this medium holds. I hope that some of my enthusiasm for this ancient art form will be passed on, and that you too can envision some exciting uses for it. I have tried to put some general and specific information on these pages for your interest, and to give you a concept of what can be accomplished with sand-etching.
Check the following links to find out more about glass etching... Each has a sample of my work to illustrate the concept involved.
