WHAT IS VERRE ÉGLOMISÉ?
The practice of Verre Eglomise, by definition, is a single gilded glass panel which is drawn into creating minute detail. The drawing side becomes the reverse side, and the final image is viewed through the glass, the opposite way around.
The celebrity of Glomy transported this fascinating technique onto the 21st Century and for me has become an incredible journey of discovery. Along the way I have had failures, triumphs, and a great deal of experimenting to develop the technique and styles needed for a 21st century art world.
The marks that are made when drawing into soft gold leaf are so fine they are almost invisible to the naked eye.
Verre Églomisé can also be accomplished in large scale, by applying many sheets of loose gold leaf to a glass panel and employing the same detailed miniature technique in the drawing.
