Lost Glass Arts

Gold leafing and custom gluchipping- just some of the amazing ornamental surface treatments historically done to glass and now, sadly and slowly dying out.
Here's a well produced and very interesting video (just try to ignore the annoying ringing bells soundtrack- Pink Floyd he ain't) of one of the current masters- David A Smith- a name that has become synonymous in Sign-Writing and Glass gilding circles, with high quality, hand crafted reverse glass signs and decorative silvered and gilded mirrors.

Put the kettle on and have a look..
