Sculptural Gilding Artist using gold leaf, verre eglomise, polished plaster to create textured and patinated surfaces and sculptures. Themes come from the natural world especially inspired by crystaline formation and geological formations.
A wee bit of verre eglomise for the splashback of a clients guest wc - making the most of a small space! My client loved the contemporary finish, but wanted it fit in with the tradition mahogany fittings so I grained the frame to bring it together.
This is a recent commission which I completed for a London client. The client actually prefered the back of the glass to the front so I had to work out how to seal and protect the leaf for use as the surface. What you can't see in this photograph is that when the dressing room lights are on (behind the glass) the lights filters through the glass where it has been rubbed through to achieve a semi-transparent effect. This is water-gilded moon gold and silver leaf.
