Verre Eglomise is a classical technique whereby gold leaf is gilded to glass, scraped into to make an image, then reverse-painted with enamel (and viewed from the other side).

This starling piece was formed on an oval sheet of plexiglass. It is made from genuine 20 karat yellow gold leaf, 13.5 karat white gold leaf, and copper leaf. The gold leaf of the bird was water-gilded and is very reflective. It has colorful enamel undertones that show at certain angles, mimicking the iridescence of starlings. The copper leaf was oil gilded, making it more matte in appearance. The entire piece was coated in two layers of sign-painter's enamel to protect the metal leaf.

The plexiglass measures 11 1/2 inches x 8 3/4 inches (about 29cm x 22cm).

Thanks for looking!
