    Lion and Kudu

    This is a piece I have just hand engraved for an American customer, I have done a similar piece before on a smaller piece which the customer saw on my website. The crystal is -optical crystal of the finest quality and the engraving is very deeply engraved into the back with a little work on the front to give it a 3 dimensional effect

    The detail in your work never ceases to amaze me David. Simply magnificent.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Did you go to a engraving school or is this just something you are naturally good at?

    I was always good at art but started engraving when my mum and dad had a pet shop for awhile -people kept asking for metal tags to be engraved with the dogs name and their address on ,so we bought a cheap engraving machine -I did the tags then tried crystal glass as it was made in the village I lived in -40 years later here I am engraving crystal glass professionally (for 33 years) The first few years the engraving was by trial and error but I progressed with better equipement and I got better at it- then a part time business for a little time- then my work was noticed by a crystal glass manufacturer and I got some big commissions the rest is history

    That is fairly good Australian English for what you were trying to say DSA. We all understood and I am sure that David will get the gist.

    That is very good Australian English - he's probably being kind to an Englishman due to fact they are beating the shit out of us in the Ashes cricket
