Noritake of Japan

This prototype was designed for Noritake of Japan. It features a gold plated lip and a sand etched design. The etching spans the entire circumference of the glass. First, the circumference of the glass was measured to provide a guide for the artwork. Next the artwork was fitted to the dimensions to give the appearance of a continuous design. Film was printed and used to develop a UV-based resist material that is applied to the glass blank by hand. Once etched, the mask is removed to reveal the final product.
