Jill Quinn Babcock ~ Glass Engraver
I started engraving accidentally. I wanted to make special Christmas gifts for my children and then, with an idea from a friend, I began. My love of glass engraving came from how immediate the results were and how I could make something usable. It's a learning process but I love every minute!
To engrave I draw the image on the glass with a marker, then cut the outline for them. After that it takes different size diamond burrs and rubber tips and stones to engrave, smooth, shade, then go back in and put highlights. It's just like painting, only with diamond bits on glass! It's a very satisfying process.
From Nova Scotia, I've shipped glass across North America and as far away as Germany. Each piece is one of a kind, and so totally unique for you!
Whether it's a commission or a piece I have already made, I hope you enjoy your treasure! Please contact me if you see something you like or would like to place a special order.
Have a wonderful day!~
