Etched Glass-Ceramic & Metal by Sandblasting

What began in 1999 as a hobby, has evolved into a full time job for Linda and Bruce. Bruce retired from Law Enforcement after 28 years and is now able to devote more time helping Linda with the larger jobs that she was reluctant to take on by herself. Their focus has shifted from rocks to glass, mirror and metal, and the quality of their work reflects the training they have received and continue to seek. They have attended a sandcarving school in New Mexico on two separate occasions and in 2008 traveled to Boise, Idaho to start their training in glass gilding. Linda says this was a feat in itself, because it is not easy to get Bruce, a native Nevadan to leave the state. While in Boise they had a chance to meet face to face with "RB" of Texas and with his experience and guidance they are finally able to etch photographs on glass. These techniques can now be applied to the pieces commissioned by those seeking a one of a kind gift or decorative item for their home or office.
