Intaglio is an old technique, still in use. The procedure involves the use of a sharp tool to create patterns and impressions on a crystal glass. A particular pattern of choice is created on a plate via cuts.

The pattern is applied on the surface of the glass by tracing the cuts with inks. The plate is carefully secured to ensure that the ink is formed in the right places without error. Wiping and dabbing with a selected absorbent to ensure cleanliness.

This refers to a technique where incisions are made on the surface of a glass with hard needles, metals, or diamond burrs. For a glass designed by a drypoint, the carved places are elevated by the side. It is a technique that is used to create effects like shadows and solid markings on a glass. The artistic markings are done on the glass with markings. A paint pigment, actually is applied to the engraved parts of the glass with a pen or pointed brush.

Stippled wine glasses are known from other forms of customization because one can practically see the artistic effects of shadows and shapes the crystal glass. The shapes and effects are known by the high and repeated touch of the pigment on a part of the engraved painting. In the sandblasting technique, a pattern would be cut out on a specific material, which would then be used to mask the glassware to be engraved.

The sandblasting gun is then used to spray the masked glass. The portion or pattern cut out of the material is left open and exposed to the effect of the gun. The pattern becomes imprinted on the glass, through abrasion. This technique is the most commercially used of all the glass engraving methods. The Panto is a form a decoration where a sharp tool is used to make the engraving on glass, and then, wax is used to make the decorative impression on the glass.

The glass is then left in the engraving bath to make perfect touches and finishes. The gold paint can then be applied to a portion of the glass.

In due course the glass was cooled, the rod removed and the core scraped out. The whole method sounds primitive, but vessels of great beauty were made in this way. Enormous care was taken to remove any defects which—inevitably—appeared, and the cooled glass was ground and polished. If the opening in the neck of the vessel was large enough, as much as possible of the inside was smoothed out too.

When it is remembered what a difficult substance glass is to work on compared with, for example, clay, these early glass vessels are amazingly well made. One can only marvel at the way a molten substance which can never even be touched—let alone molded—by hand is shaped into such graceful objects. Glassmaking gradually took root not only in Egypt, where Alexandria was a great manufacturing centre for many centuries, but in other areas of the Middle East, particularly Syria. Throughout the following centuries, both Alexandrian and Syrian glassmaking reached very high standards.

The two styles developed separately, Syrian glass becoming more ornate than Alexandrian. The development of glass followed a very leisurely course: not until somewhere around 50 BC, several thousand years after its unknown beginning, a further discovery was made that molten glass could be blown into shapes on the end of a hollow rod.

As in the discovery of making glass, the origins of blowing it are unknown. It is most likely to have been an accidental discovery, but however it came about it was a development of tremendous importance and, apart from various refinements introduced down the centuries, the actual technique of blowing glass, and the tools used, have ever since remained basically the same.

Today, when nothing seems to last for five minutes without change and upheaval, and where planned obsolescence is part of life, this thousands of years old continuity of glassmaking methods is a most satisfying thought. Spreading round the Mediterranean area, glassmaking was practised in turn by the Greeks and the Romans. Roman glass denotes glass of that period rather than glass made by the citizens of Rome themselves, as Rome was not an important centre of manufacture. The Romans appear to have known just about everything as far as glass is concerned except how to make pure sparkling crystal: the world had to wait many centuries for that.

The discovery of blowing glass quickly resulted in a great freedom for craftsmen, and Roman glassmakers developed all kinds of techniques. They knew how to engrave it, both in the manner of engravers of precious stones, and in the cameo technique, and also used some kind of sharp tool to produce what was to be the forerunner of diamond point engraving.

They could enamel it, gild it, and even use engraved gold sandwiched between two layers of glass—a means of decoration successfully used again in Germany and Bohemia, long after in the eighteenth century. Their glass was often made in a variety of colours, some of which were due to impurities which at that time it was beyond anyone's knowledge to remove. This was particularly true of the greens which began to predominate. As well as making glass by the blowing method, the Romans continued to use molds for some kind of work, particularly when making plaques with any kind of molded design upon them.

The Romans also did some very beautiful work by means of fused glass mosaics. This is just another example of their skill because today, nearly 2, years later, people are again doing much the same kind of work with every modern aid, including small electric kilns. Roman fused glass mosaics were made by arranging pieces of different coloured glass in haphazard patterns and fusing them in a furnace.

Plaques made by this method were used as jewellery or were inlaid in furniture. Mosaic patterned glass bowls were also made by reheating pieces of coloured glass in a mold.

These were known as murrhine bowls. Roman glass was usually useful, generally decorative, and always extremely elegant. Much of it now has an attractive iridescence as a result of the physical conditions in which it has remained through many centuries; if it has spent hundreds of years buried in dampness it often has an attractive pearly gleam.

Many hundreds of years later, towards the end of the nineteenth century, an American, Tiffany, made extensive research into Roman methods of manufacture in an effort to reproduce the iridescence of so much Roman glass. He succeeded in producing what became known as Favrile glass. The years approximately of the Roman Empire provided the most civilised, well governed and settled conditions the Western world had ever known, and during that time the art of making glass spread to all parts of her vast territory.

Glassmakers were often wanderers by temperament, especially the Syrians and, as a result of this, glasshouses were set up further and further afield, spreading gradually northwards over Europe. Apart from an individual's personal desire for change, there was often a real need to move in order to ensure a supply of raw materials. Glasshouses used a vast amount of wood for fuel, as well as quantities of sand: as an illustration of the amount of wood used, glassmakers in England in were forbidden to use it for fuel because they had made such inroads into the forests.

The centres of glassmaking changed constantly over the centuries.

by Norman, Barbara

In the West, the Roman Empire was already in decay by the beginning of the sixth century and in the resulting chaos all artistic endeavour suffered greatly. But eastwards, in Byzantium and the Near East, this was a time of expansion. In Western Europe the Dark Ages closed in, and what remained of glassmaking had to be adapted to changed conditions and to fight for survival.

Glasshouses, however, appeared towards the north in an area bounded by the Seine and Rhine, and a distinctive kind of Forest glass, called Waldglas, was developed from local ingredients, the alkali content of the glass being obtained from wood ash from the abundant forests. This resulted in a natural colouring of varying pale greens and ambers.
