Laura Bowker Engraved Glass Creations
My work is inspired by everything I see, feel and experience. It is a personal expression of my creativity and an interweaving combination of color, form, texture and line. The technique used in my work is glass engraving, a centuries old Italian style of grinding and sculpting called Battuto. The result is definitive lines, facets, and angles and of course the matte finish.
Each piece is held in my hands against stone or diamond wheels to create textures – textures that vary in patterned faceting from deep grooves to very subtle lines. The result is a tactile surface that invites touch. Since glass absorbs warmth, it is my way of drawing people in to reach out, feel the matte texture and experience my work.
I have a passion for glass, beads, jewelry and metal work. My hope is that this passion is transferred to and felt by all who see my pieces. If so, then I am grateful that my passion has combined with their enjoyment and their own creative eye. Enjoy!
