The art of reverse painted or gilded glass is referred to as "verre eglomise" popularized by 18th century French decorator and art-dealer Jean-Baptise Glomy (1711–1786), although it is an art technique that can be found on artwork predating Roman times.
Maria’s reverse painted artwork is offered on many types of glass including antiqued mirror ranging from light to heavily tarnished silver, palladium gold, moon gold and colored glass. A few possible uses for gilded/painted glass include: table tops, cabinet door insets, folding screens, kitchen/bath backsplashes and wall murals. The variety of painted finishes and combinations of metal and chemical effects are endless making this an exciting art form which is both dazzling and functional. All work is done in the studio in California, but can be shipped anywhere worldwide. Please contact the studio for more information and quotes.
