Originally from the Loire Atlantique region, Laëtitia Deshaies moved to Burgundy before training as a gilder in 2001 in the workshops of Bertrand Lotteau in Vaux-en-Pré. There she learned the techniques and styles by working on frames, mirrors, statues, altarpieces; by visiting beautiful homes, churches and museums.
It was while restoring a frame containing 19th century eglomised glass that she became interested in this technique. Fascinated by the vegetal, the movement and the figurative, she uses all the metals in sheets, such as Gold, Palladium, Silver, Copper, Brass or Aluminium, which she reworks once they are placed on the glass.
The eglomeration technique dates back to antiquity. In the 18th century, Jean Baptiste Glomy, the King's framer, brought this process back into fashion between 1711 and 1786 to enhance the framing of engravings, subsequently giving his name to the process.
We invite you to come and discover this free exhibition, open to all, which will amaze you and make you discover or rediscover the technique of eglomised glass.
