Hand Engraved/Sandblasted/Etched Glass Panel Tipperary's Night Club (Harare). I had been asked to design the main logo "character" . The first large panel went above the main door between the nightclub and dining area. I engraved matching ballustrades for the diningroom and more panels for the second nightclub when it opened.

This was a very large piece of glass which I engraved . Afterwards it was Silvered on the engraved side to make a mirror for a pub, trapping the engraving inside forever. When I collected it the sun was shining through the window onto it and causing this amazing rainbow effect, a magical moment I managed to capture on camera!!

The Concorde was a magnificent houseboat on Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe, and whilst I had engraved several houseboats before, this one was the hottest and most amazing experience. The temperature was 40degC ! I had been flown up from Hararae by the owner in his 4 seater Cessna and was given the main suite of the Concorde to stay in with waiters ensuring I was well looked after. In the evening I stood at the front of the boat with my gin and tonic watching a family of hippos playing right in front of me as the sun set over the lake. I cannot put into words how wonderful I felt right then. If only life could always be so beautiful.
