Submerged with underwater coral reef etchings.

COLCHESTER, CT -- The client's goal to create decorative etched glass to withstand the test of time was fulfilled.
The artwork for the etchings was inspired by Joanne Book's work, a Florida painter famous for her underwater scenes. The new art required significant interpretation for three dimensional relief carving.
This project took about 4 months to complete including line art preparation for the 5) 60" x 72" coral reef etchings, and the 1) 65" x 75" tropical etching overlooking

the jacuzzi. Long lead times allow far more detail to be included. The fish etchings are quite accurate in their portrayal of their actual fish counterparts. These coral etchings display the different coral species quite accurately.


HARTFORD, CT -- The City Of Hartford completed it's renovation and Absonite provided the beautiful new Town Seals in elegant multistaged deep carved etchings.
The artwork for the seals while looking great in print in miniature size, needed to be carefully reworked digitally at full size to allow a true three dimensional rendering in etched glass. Part of Absonite's service and dedication to high quality.
The majesty and grace of the Hartford City Building is in good company with Absonite Glassworks.

MAHOPAC, NY -- Saint John The Evangelist Church created an ornately detailed transom glass and dedicated it to the Blessed Sisters Of Mercy. The transom etching was created using 3/8'' thick laminated safety glass cut in a rectangular shape to fit the overhead transom area located in the elementary school doorway. The original crest of the school artwork was provided and modified by Absonite to create this fine dedication transom etching. The etching uses the shading technique weaved throughout the decorative ribbon details.
The detail photos were taken at the Absonite Studio, but to see the etchings in all their brilliant beauty, you must see them in the entrance to the school gymnasium.

STAMFORD, CT -- The World Wrestling Federation's executive suite, headquartered in Stamford, recently renovated from the ground up. Shown are inside and outside views of the suite entrance. There is a dramatic difference between fluorescent and incandescent lighting and how lighting effects coloring the glass in the environment.
The bold "WW" etched design created by the architect lets you know at a glance just where you are.
Working with the client's glaziers, Absonite provided the service of etching the details with a fine solid frost.
