Reverse Etched and gilded glass Monogramme
This glass sign was made for John Mayer in 2013 as a thank you gift.
The glass is deep sand carved and water gilded in 24crt Gold Leaf ,12crt silver and 18crt lemon gold . The outer edge has brilliant cut facets and acid mica border with a bright gold and silver mirror finish . The shadow and outline is hand painted with a deep traditional colour of maroon enamel. The glass was slumped (heat curved) over a stainless steel ring inside my kiln to a temperature of 680 degrees. The back of this glass sign was hand sign written and the mahogany frame was french polished.
