Technique


Reverse Glass artwork is the process of painting on one side of clear class with the purpose of the completed painting being viewed from the opposite side. Because of this the painting is approached from the foreground first and the background is completed last.

My technique involves the use of water based paints and sealers only. Firing or heat processes are not involved. Three dimensional vessels are painted in reverse on the inside. In contrast, two dimensional work is painted in reverse from the backside. Multiple layers of paint are used in my technique as each color added can affect the color underneath. This quality gives depth of color and character unique to this art form. Each piece of my reverse glass artwork is original and one of a kind.
