Looks like that section of the gallery could use some padding!  The one photo there doesn't tell what finish it is, Anne! ;D  Sandblasting, right?  That's a great photo, shows the graininess to it, so it's distinguishable from etching.  I have lots of photos of etching and engraving, different types of enameling - should I put a few directly in the gallery?  Are they linked to a thread or anything?

It's a fairly new section waiting for populating with pictures Kristi, so any pics would be more than welcome.  ;) Those three albums are uploadable to (what awful grammar, sorry Bernard!  ;D) by any signed in GG member.  The one pic there doesn't have a description as I have no idea what the finish is called - am hoping someone can tell me  ;D (it's a Dartington Studio piece we discussed here a while back.)

Does it look/feel like something's applied?  Otherwise I'd think it's sandblasted.  I've forgotten what it's called when itty bitty pieces of glass are adhered to a piece, but I can probably find out.

It's a (grown-up physically) boys club on the lines of freemasonry.  So a "You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours" type of thing obscured by dressing up and secret oaths and other adolescent fantasies played out.

Yikes!  That's one way to sum it up!

Found another buffalo-etched piece, looks like the same buffalo.  Just thought I'd throw it on here for curiosity's sake.
