The Rose Water glass panel was designed for a Gold Leaf workshop with my friend Gary Godby who came here from Virginia, USA in 2006.
The company he works for sent him to learn advanced techniques of reverse glass work. The panel took over 1 week to complete and roughly around 20 hours for me to design, we both made a panel to hang on our walls.
The glass is 3ft by 18′s and has various techniques including acid etched pictures, gold leaf in various shades and brilliant cutting.
Mother of pearl and abalone shell is used around the circle design. The girl pictorial is hand painted in reverse. Backgrounds are finger blended along with cast shadows painted and blended around the letters by hand. This was a fun project to make and I had good company to work with.
