MARE SAARE

Engraving on glass is born from thousands of wheel cuts or scratched lines, making use of the perfection of human hand and vision. Time is one of the leading factors, too. It is a luxurious craft – one cannot get extra time, one cannot realise all ideas. Making choices is essential. The most intimate of all glass techniques, precise, innermost action, completely revealing the individuality of its creator, engraving has become a symbol of meditativeness, contemplation and continuous self–improvement for the artist.

I love to combine engraved glass with kiln-working. Marks made on black glass with diamond wheel rise in relief when fired at certain temperatures in a kiln. Besides that effect, the glass surface often changes colour and texture due to the metal oxides from the batch rising to the surface, which may become wrinkled like leather or iridescent like metal.
