By Braden Todd Carving through Generations: What you need to know about sandcarving Wiley Smith, my grandfather, owned and operated The Glass-Smith. In addition to decorating glass, he also made beautiful stained-glass pieces and some pieces even had a mix of engraved and stained glass. (Image courtesy Braden Todd) Braden Todd is a second-generation engraver and owner of Glassmith2, located in Boulder, Colorado. Braden's expertise ranges from sandcarving, industrial laser cutting/engraving, UV printing, and the other supporting facets that allow Glassmith2 to consistently provide cutting-edge items to its retail and wholesale customers. Questions and wholesale inquiries are always welcome: W here does the name Glassmith2 come from? This is a frequent question we get from new customers and business partners. Glassmith2 is a business that was named to honor the person that taught me the art of sand- carving, my grandpa Wiley Smith. Our start with sandcarving art glass was the start of the journey to where we are now, a rapidly growing awards and engraving company. This is the story of how sand- carving started it all and led us to where we are today. Sandcarving 56 S T A R T H E R E 2 0 2 0
