Michael Dyber is a completely self taught artist.
The desire to create led him to build the equipment he needed to materialize his creative vision in gem carving.
The grinding arbor in the photo was designed and built entirely in his studio.
He built all his carving arbors, and tools. He facets by hand on a flat lap.
In 1987, he developed his first signature Lapidary technique: “Dyber Optic Dish”™. This technique creates optical illusions in small and large dimensions.
In 1999, his second lapidary technique “Luminaires” was introduced to the world. This lapidary technique creates illumination and optic illusions within the gemstone.
In 2006, he introduced his signature lapidary technique: “Photon Phacet™”. These phacets™ are inside the gem. By using all or any of his signature techniques, he creates signed one of a kind gem designs.
He introduced his latest lapidary technique: “Illusion Lines™” in 2023, at James Alger Co. AGTA, Tucson AZ & AGTA Las Vegas shows.
By using all or any of his signature techniques, he creates signed one of a kind gem carvings.
