Master engraver shares talent at Glendo - emporiagazette.com By Scott Rochat Thursday, May 31, 2007
Marcus Hunt considers his father the real master engraver. He may be right. But Hunt is no slouch. How good is he? Good enough to be commissioned by Eric Clapton to engrave a pair of shotguns. How good? Good enough to be hired by the Queen’s own armorer — that’s as in Queen Elizabeth II — to engrave a scabbard for a World War II hero. How good? Good enough to spend two weeks at Glendo as an artist in residence, including a week in the research and design area, working with an engraving tool that hasn’t been commercially released yet.
