Deep etching is where the artist etches deep into the glass from behind to bring the writing closer to the front surface. This gives it a nice 3D effect once the gold leaf is applied.
The handmade frames are created by the artist from pine lengths which are rebated or shaped. Sometimes they will be put in a media blaster to bring out the grain effects. Then they will be burnt and stained alternatively until the artist is happy with the effect. They are then french polished and a plywood back is applied.
