This reverse gilded and acid etched glass sign was made for Sam Smith from Calgary in Canada in 2014.
Sam is a world class tattooist and artist, her boyfriend commissioned me to make this glass sign as a present for her. Sam came over to stay with friends in London and at the same time came down to pick up the work and take it back to her home in Canada.
The techniques used on the sign were deep blasting, acid mica stipple , blended glazes with matt gilding
and a water gilded outline of 23 crt gold leaf. The frame is mahogany and has been French polished.
