Nautilus side-project - an artsy way to pass my spare time...

Nautilus, Seaview, and more

Postby Bob the Builder » Fri Sep 26, 2003 11:21 am

I've just started into this in my spare time in a joint venture with my brother-in-law.

The Nautilus pictured below is about 30" long, and is carved into a sheet of 1/2" thick glass. It's NOT etched, but actually CARVED into the plate with a special blaster, and is fully three dimensional.

When the light hits it from the edges of the glass, the effect is astounding. You may have seen the same thing in some restaurants or other commercial businesses.




I need a bigger sheet of glass so I can do up a 7' long version, with all the rivetheads and window bezels shown :D

That's awesome! If it was mine I would display that artwork proudly and prominently where everybody would see it.
