Jude Lagarde, a graduate of Louisiana State University’s College of Art and Design, became interested in glass as an art form in the early 90′s. He began with simple experimentation and home-schooling himself in the technique of surface etching. His natural talent was quickly recognized by those around him and he was soon designing and etching glass doors and windows in several cities in Louisiana. The success of his self-taught basic knowledge of surface etching encouraged him to seek professional training as well. He attended school in Santa Fe, New Mexico where he was trained by Etch Master Professional Glass Consultants to use additional techniques of glass etching to expand his capabilities in this exciting media.
The name of his studio, Etchit Glass for Living, conveys how glass in our immediate surroundings can transcend its role of functionality to an art form of self-expression to be appreciated on a daily basis. Etchit Glass for Living specializes in architectural glass etching design to adorn any glass surface from your entry door to your shower door.
Windows, mirrors, table tops, book case/cabinet fronts and free-hanging art work are additional architectural features which can be enhanced through etching. Etched glass is a reflection of ones personality and life style. It is a unique expression which is appreciated from both the interior perspective as well as the exterior perspective.
