Custom Lithophanes
What is a lithophane?

European lithophanes were first produced nearly at the same time in France, Germany, Prussia, and England around the later part of the 1820s. Early lithophanes were made by specialized European craftspeople beginning as an image carved in warm wax on a glass plate. These beautiful carvings, in ambient light, seem only to be bumpy surfaces forming a vague picture.  But, when the ambient light is extinguished and the lithophane is back-lit, a beautiful, three-dimensional picture appears in incredible depth and detail.
