I personally feel obligation towards this tradition of engraving that goes far beyond the workings of Richard Hahn and August Rudolf Wild”, says Andreas Roth and goes on: “In the future, I would like to proceed with the evolved tradition of artistic craftwork from my native region.“
Andreas and his father Dieter Roth are both master engravers who specialize in the manufacturing of modern, antique and classic cameos, as well as portrait engravings and intaglios, designed in gemstones.
Andreas Roth acquired his gemstone carving skills in his father’s workshop in Idar-Oberstein. After several years of experience he gained his Master’s Degree in in the art of gemstone carving in 1999. His natural talent earned him the national title in the youth craftsmanship competition in 1993, and began his excellent international career. His growing success and reputation lead to the display of his work in special exhibitions from Europe to Israel and Japan.
