Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Walking on Broken Glass

This glass-covered hiking boot attracted my attention at a craft fair a couple of years ago. It is the trademark of a talented glass-engraver called Alexis Valentine.

When I got talking to him he told me that he had worked in a lab as a dental technician for 32 years making crowns and bridgework. I’ll bet he could have made some fancy gnashers!

Using his “Skill with a Drill”, all his creations are quite unique. This one has the fox’s head on the far-side of the glass and its face on the near-side.
