David Frye. "The Jersey Lily: Portrait of Lillie Langtry"
2007
Stipple engraved glass
9.0" H x 2.125" Dia.
$450
This is a stipple engraved portrait from a late 19th century photograph of the famous actress and entrepreneur. The engraving process is done entirely by hand using a tungsten carbide needle held in a pin vice. The image is created by very gently tapping the the glass with the needle resulting in almost microscopic 'dots'. It takes many weeks of intensive work to finish a single image.
