Gilding is a process of applying sheets of gold to a surface. Various methods can be used to achieve a bright mirror gild or a dynamic, matte, gild.

I study traiditional reverse glass gilding through my personal art practice and instructional workshops. This form of craft allows me to hone new skills while refining my understanding of letterforms and hand-rendered designs.
