The Guild provides an insight into contemporary Glass Engraving. It aims to promote the highest standards of glass engraving.The website contains techniques, a gallery of members engraved glass, where to see it and where to learn to engrave.
One of the original honorary members and supporters of the Guild was HM The Queen Mother.
The Guild acts as a forum for the teaching and discussion of engraving techniques and new
developments from around the world as well as acting as a source of information to the public
on all aspects of glass engraving and advises the growing number of individuals and institutions
wishing to commission work.
To engrave glass is to embark on an absorbing and rewarding experience of working with light.
The mysterious qualities of glass - a liquid metal caught in a moment of time and requiring both
fire and water in the making - appear magical. Glass engravers capture, enhance and celebrate
these qualities in their work and endeavour to communicate them to a wider audience.
