Description

An elegant gift for a gracious host. Handcrafted in the workshop of Edmundo Contreras. In reverse glass painting, painting is done on the back of glass. Details are painted first, then larger color areas, and finally a background color. Reverse painting requires great care and skill, as the visual “surface” is painted first then layered over, so errors cannot be corrected. The art has an ancient history dating the Middle Ages.
