Verre Eglomisé - Reverse Painting and Gold Gilding on Glass
18.5" X 15.5" Framed

"Moon Maidens" is one of a series in my "wall jewelry" Dancers on Glass using reverse painting on glass with gold leaf.

My glass art pieces are all one-of-a-kind. Each is individually hand painted and gilded with 23K gold leaf or silver leaf. This process is called verre églomisé, a term for cold painting and gilding on the back of glass.

"I was drawn toward Gilded Glass Painting during a visit to master glass artist Marco Toso Borella, in Murano, Italy. I was inspired by his work on gilded glass and application of Gustav Klimt motifs. I knew immediately that I had to explore this exciting medium.”
