Vince Crowley learned his craft under the guidance of Rashid Hadi here at Westley Richards. Rashid is a master of fine scroll, when with clear head, the speed, dexterity and quality of work he produces off a spinning engraving vice is an absolute joy to watch. For Vince, the time with Rash was a time spent learning the hand skills needed to execute this level of work. The rotation of the vice, the sharpening of the gravers, varying depth of cut, shading, layout and whatever other magic is required to execute fine scroll at this level of finesse. It was time very well spent as you can see from this magnificent work.
And the game scene is not too bad either!!
