Each piece is hand made using spun glass technique. Once the glass has cooled, each plate is hand decorated on the back with a patina paint. This is followed with gilding the silver, gold or copper leaves on the surface. Once the surface is cleaned from metal leaf residues, the item is heat cured and then a layer of organic pigment is placed on each glass piece by hand. As the metal layer soaks the paints in, all items are sealed with a special lacquer to assure its resistance to usage and heated for a final time to cure the item and penetrate all materials on the glass surface.
