This was a particularly challenging project that came through last month. The image is of a scientific model of a theory of some sort regarding protein … I think. It was commissioned by the father of the theoretician. The etching might be a bit confusing to look at because many of the shadows are created with two-dimensional shading while others are actual real shadows cast by the lit edges of the carved forms – so even though it may not look like it, this is all happening on one piece of flat glass.
