The Process

Engraving glass involves physically carving your design into the surface of the glass.  Our standard method of engraving is sandblasting but for certain complicated designs, a laser engraver is also used.

A stencil-like mask of your design is created and placed on the glass.  The glass is then sandblasted using a fine abrasive. The areas of glass under the mask are protected, while the areas of glass not covered by the mask are engraved away. When the mask is removed, your design appears as frosted white on the glass surface.  The design is now a permanent part of the glass, will never wear off or fade away and is dishwasher safe.

Windows

Etching windows for privacy is a great way to deflect the prying eyes of neighbours and passers-by without sacrificing the flow of natural light. You don’t need to sacrifice your privacy to let a little sunlight in. 

While entire windows can be etched, smaller etched glass panels can also be used to create privacy or add a decorative touch to your windows.
