Reverse Glass Painting
"verre-eglomise"

Ray Brown is considered very talented at placing simple artist materials onto the back of glass in a way that assists the motif to gleams.

His artistic talent has been adapted to both traditional and contemporary themes providing a beautiful visual experience to an old art technique. 

Verre-eglomise is named after Jean-Baptist Glomy, a French 18th Century frame maker to Louis XVI, who used the technique extensively to decorate 
Mirrors and Trudeau for Marie-Antoinette.

Although the finest work was carried out in the 17 th and 18 th centuries, it is much older, with early examples of E'glomise' glass decorated bowls from a tomb in Italy, 
dating from the third century B.C..


E'glomise’ glass is: metal leafing, on their own or in combination, 
applied to the underside of a sheet of glass.

At it’s simplest a single or double line of gold leaf was laid on the glass, 
protected by a layer of black paint.

This technique is still employed today for traditional prints.

At its most intricate complicated and elaborate designs can be achieved.

"No artist is ahead of his time. He is his time.
It is just that others are behind the time”
