The Society of Gilders was invited to exhibit the work of its members in a juried show at the Polasek Museum, in Winter Park, FL. The opening reception was delightful, and attended by myself and a number of other members, as well as a huge public turnout. The show is incredible – some of the finest gilding work you will see. I was honored to have two pieces in it.
The picture on the wall to the left is my quilled “Tikveh (hope)” The piece in the case is something new – a Guipure lace bowl covered in 18K gold leaf, with an accent of 6K gold. This is not on my website, but here is a closeup. By the way, I made the skirt and top I am wearing in the picture – with Guipure lace!
