VITREOGRAPH

A vitreograph is a print from a glass matrix. These hand-pulled prints are achieved through intaglio processes. There are different ways the plate glass can be etched upon. For example, sandblasting the surface with sand or carborundum, frosting and etching with a mild caustic solution or grinding with diamond tip tools to create crevices in which the ink can settle upon.
