The silver leaf scroll pattern that adorns the rim accentuates the lovely texture of the plate's glass.
After a successful career in art direction for commercial photography, Tamara Childs began experimenting with gold leaf on her grandmother's old chair. This led to a new career creating designs on glass by applying tissue-thin sheets of gold, silver, or other metals. Each piece is then polished by hand and lacquered. Most of the glass is designed exclusively by and for the Childs Studio, and because the items are crafted by hand, no two are exactly alike.
