The use of mirror in design work is nothing new. Etching areas into the mirror and painting in reverse on the back of the glass is a technique also known as “verre eglomise” named after an 18th century frame maker, Jean Baptist Glomy. Using this age old concept, and combining it with the use of modern day chemicals and decorative products, have led to many sensational bespoke installations within a range of spaces, both commercial and private. Most substrates can benefit from the application of eglomise glass, from small feature pieces, such as a table top, to an entire feature wall, floor to ceiling. What could be more enchanting?
