Catherine Miller Designs

Buckhannon, WV

For 34 years, self-taught artisan Catherine Miller has pursued the dying art of intaglio crystal engraving, and specializes in original one of a kind heirloom items. Catherine's  inspiration originated with an article in National Geographic covering the dying art of copper wheel engraving. She uses the old world method of hand engraving original art into crystal with a variety of stone wheels of different diameters and profiles on a lathe. All work is executed free hand without the use of stencils or patterns, with some items taking close to 200 hours to engrave.
