Luxury Hand Engraved Calligraphy
What is Calligraphy Engraving?
Engraving is a form of decoration that involves carving a design into a material, causing the art to become a permanent feature of the material. This technique has been used by artisans for centuries!
I marry this time honored technique with my signature calligraphy script, creating beautiful objects that are alive with flowing linework and style.
The Artistic Process
My engraving work is always completed in-house by hand and never involves lasers, which is perfect for unconventionally shaped items and live events.
My triple-pass process ensures that all of my engraved art achieves a bright and even finish across the surface of the object.
For those who want a little extra shimmer (and I always do!), the completed design can be finished in sparkling silver or an array of dazzling gold shades. Unfilled designs will show as frosted on most glass materials, and reveal underlying layers of metal on most coated metal materials.
What Can Be Engraved?
Your favorite wine bottles, fragrances, glass drinkware, and many other items are perfect candidates for my engraving service.
Please note that champagne and other pressurized bottles pose an explosion risk to me during the engraving process. As such, any champagne bottles will be purchased by me on your behalf to ensure proper handling.
I offer hand-painted champagne bottles as an alternative, please visit my Fine Art Bottle Painting page for more information.
The object must have a portion of smooth surface large enough to accommodate your design in order to be engraved.
My most requested (and favorite!) items to engrave are those made of glass.
