Eglomise (as it is generally referred to in the design industry today) is generally thought to have been used primarily as borders and inset medallions since the Italian and English Baroque periods. However; Verre Eglomise or Reverse Painted glass as a decorative feature has been used since it’s genesis in the early Syrian empires, BC; and has been re-interpreted in almost every century through the 1900s.

With the 20th century’s use of manufactured glass Eglomise was used in the Art Deco and mid-Century Moderne eras as bordered mirrors and incorporated with carved and cut glass. As a wall-covering it has had a major resurgence in the past decade; thanks in part to the work done by Gorman Studios. Panel sizes have been produced by GSI as large as 3.4 m X 2.0 m that create entire elevations as single pieces of glass vs. the segmented panels required previously.

Gorman Studios’ Eglomise Collections range from the traditional Illustrated Reverse Painted techniques to our interpretation of Oriental Lacquers using a custom painting system we have developed to push the boundaries to contemporary interpretations of patterns and techniques which emulate textiles, textures and cut crystal.
