Crist A. Stringfellow, Hooksett, NH Member Since August 2010 Artist Statement Hi; I am a glass etching artist that is operating an online store at:
My artwork that I refer to as ART ON GLASS is "Hand Etching" images, scenes or self-arranged collages onto glass. 15th Century.
To explain my art form, I etch an image onto the glass, after which I "Frost" each piece with white enamel paint and then buff it out for optimum balance between the etching, background and it's frame. Some of my pieces are partially or completely colored. Each piece sets against a black background and rests within a complementary colored frame.
Most of my work is done on 4 x 6 and 5 x 7 inch photo frames. These pieces are created and sold at wholesale and retail (online). A 4 x 6" sells for $19.95 and a 5 x 7" sells for $24.95. Many of my pieces are done as a set and based on a theme, such as a "Lighthouse Set".
I do larger pieces as well; however as the size increases so does the level of difficulty and the time involved. A successful 8 x 10 takes approximately 6 to 8 hrs work and an 11 x 14 takes about 8 to 10 hrs to complete.
Freelance and custom work is always welcome.
