Eglomisé glass or "Verre églomisé" is a French technique dating back to pre-Roman time, deriving its name from the 18th century French decorator and art dealer Jean-Baptiste Glomy, who was responsible for its re-popularization.  It is a rare, highly sophisticated technique, which begins by gilding the reverse side of a glass panel with precious metals.  Patterns and textures are then engraved into the metal with a stylus, and one or more colors added after. Eglomisé is a versatile medium that imbues spaces with an ethereal and kinetic quality.

Artists Brigitte Michelet and Miguel Villafranca of Villafranca Studio specialize in the art of églomisé architectural glass, hand-making unique and sumptuous designs in their San Francisco studio. Recipients of the 2016 Julia Morgan Award in Artisanship & Craftsmanship, their highly respected studio produces sophisticated and finely detailed glass that are truly works of art.

Please join the ICAA and Villafranca Studio to celebrate Bastille Day!  Discover and explore the superb craftsmanship of églomisé as Brigitte and Miguel give participants guided instruction in the process of this fascinating technique. Enjoy a French themed lunch and wine while learning and creating your very own piece of églomisé to take home!
This is a hands-on studio workshop. Please dress to be working with paint!
