Creative glass

There are not many companies working with typography in such a creative way Madison Glass Co. does. As a long time fan of hand lettering, vintage inspired typography and curiosity for the craft, Ross Moody, the founder of Madison was instantly taken by the underlying ethos of Sign Painting. This idea that the best kind of success is the one you define yourself, based not on prestige or money but on process and happiness. We would like to show our appreciation to this respect of lettering and sign painting today and show you what design and typography can be and what power it has.

Pyrography

Pyrography or Pyrogravur is a special artform of decorating wood with  other materials with burn marks resulting from the controlled application of a heated object such as a poker. It is also known as pokerwork or wood burning. It is similar to Tattoos, you can create shades and tones while rasing the pressure on the wood as on the skin. The harder the pressure is the better is the contrast and the more black you give it. Mostly this is made with an iron, but we have seen artworks that are made with a hot calligraphy feather. The process of wood burning and decorating is very old and goes back to the first human in Africa and Egypt. While we got some nice inspiration from lucybuddresearch a fan of us, we had to look for more. This is the small collection of the best pieces that we found. Enjoy it!
