Profile
Melbourne master engraver Nick Karagulidi proudly uses the same engraving techniques as his Russian forefathers. His trade hasn't altered in centuries.

He only uses his collection of 120 graves and his hands to make this art.

The only other tools he uses in his workshop are his microscope and the Shellac Flakes, a wax-like substance stuck of the metal to keep it in place while he works.

The art of engraving is something Karagulidi has been teaching himself since he was 15 years old. He studied wood carving and metal craft at the University of St. Peterburg in Russia.

Like most of his colleagues, Karagulidi believes that computers cannot threaten his highly artistic work. "Computer work can be very fine and bright but cannot compare to the deep and intricate work a master engraver can do" he says.
