An Artful Eglomise Installation
We were presented with the opportunity to create a focal point backsplash for a beautiful mahogany bar in a historical Evanston home. After the first studio meeting with the client we agreed on a stunning, mysterious, constellation eglomise piece we had in our collection.
We adapted the original artwork using platinum leaf instead of traditional mirroring for the figures, keeping the deep blue/black in the background as well as the accents of 23 and 12 karat gold. The figures were realized with an overall etching-like rendition of the brushwork, which made them contrast and pop.
As a final touch, forty of the main stars defining the mythological figures were left as 1/4” clear glass circles with their outline gilded as stars in cranberry silver leaf. This allowed the glow of a super thin LED light behind the glass to shine through, bringing additional drama and depth to the composition.
Architect: Morgante Wilson Architects, Evanston
We are always grateful to the designers and architects that hire and inspire us.
Thank you!
