I use Flexcut carving knives, and most enjoy carving aromatic cedar, basswood and some pine. Not shown here are the many (many) printing blocks that I have carved over the past few years. I really wish I had more time to carve. :/
My day job! I worked for about 10 years in a glass decorating company, called Classy Glass. There I designed, drew and painted or sandblasted glass. We also etched glass and crystal glass awards for companies of all sizes, as well as drinking glasses and large cut crystal vases. I also used two medium sized laser machines for etching and cutting acrylic, sometimes wood and laserable metal. Work was almost always busy in the shop, so there was not much time for picture taking. Above are a few pictures of pieces I worked on.
T-Shirts and Patches

My t-shirts and iron-on patches are printed with a method called block printing. I actually carve a block of basswood by hand, roll screen-printing ink over it, carefully align my block on the fabric, then put all of my weight on the block to make a good print. You might be thinking, 'hmm, aren't there faster ways to print on fabric?' -you're right, there are, and this is why I make such small batches. After the ink dries, I then heat-set it so that the print will last a good many washings.
