Reverse-painting on glass, also known as verre églomisé, requires impeccable technique. This exquisite pair of trays boasts a stylish combination of bird-bedecked patterns, along with a gorgeous array of colors. “Something old, something new” could well be the motto of California-based Fringe Studio. The artisans marry vintage wallpapers, antique textiles, and classic botanical renderings with their own original designs to create lush, transparent imagery on glass trays, frames, and other accent pieces. Each handmade item is a distinctive example of how the past and the present can be combined to create something of beauty that will last for the foreseeable future.
