painting on glass
Verre ÈglomisÈ, also known as glass gilding, is a rare art with a long history as ancient as the Ptolemaic era in Egypt and the Roman Empire.

Gold leaf and other metal foils applied under glass provide a reflectivity and beauty unachieved in other media. The technique has been used in ancient religious pieces, furniture, glassware, jewelry, and contemporary artwork.
