Johnnie Walker Black double label recreation all etched into the bottle. It was sandblasted, airbrushed black on top and gold on bottom, then hand-painted over with the alternating color. Some of the letters are strictly raised glass to allow the alcohol color to shimmer through as seen in the "Bottled in London, Blended...", the date , "Blended Scotch Whiskey" and the wreath. One of my favorite bottles to etch! I think it is one of the coolest birthday gifts you can give to a person who has everything. All the information is personalized just for them. When the bottle is finished... fill it with Iced Tea to keep on displaying on your shelf;)

Have your personal message added and you are sure to leave an impression.
Assemblyman Michael Cusick wanted to present an award to the Sandy Relief Organization, Guyon Rescue for their service to the community in the aftermath of the storm. He liked the glass awards and the 3 dimensional look of the carved images. He asked if an eagle could be done. I choose this image for its strong and bold pose and detail in the feathers.

Finishing up the last of 3 awards I do annually for the Thomas La Puppet Memorial Classic karate competition. On the left is my carving map. I must sandblast the things that appear closer to the viewer first and deepest. That is the start of obtaining the 3 dimensional layering. On the right is the finished piece set within in a light up base to illuminate the carving.
Al from the Islanders Motorcycle Club brought a bottle of Jack Daniels in looking to have a plate engraved and stuck on the bottle wishing his Low Riders Motorcycle Club friends a Happy Anniversary. I suggested to him if he would trust me and allow me to remove the back label, I would etch into the glass bottle the same inscription but leaving a more permanent and finished look. He gave me the ok and was more than happy with the finished product.
Verizon is recognizing seven of their top employees with this contemporary award. It is made of lacquered wood, stand offs to suspend the glass and two aluminum rods that create a striking three dimensional award. The engraving is etched on the glass and creates a floating look.
