Royal College of Art alumni, Carol Fulton creates bespoke verre églomisé panels and painted glass artworks for interior and furniture designers

Verre églomisé - or reverse glass gilding - refers to the ancient craft of applying real gold or silver leaf to the reverse of a piece of glass using a water/gelatin or oil-based size (glue). Various methods can be employed to patinate the metal leaf - or embellish it with pattern - for a more textured result.

Carol uses this technique in both her decorative finishes as well as her bespoke art pieces. All projects are produced by hand in the Tring studio.

Before discovering verre églomisé in 2016, Carol worked as an interiors and editorial photographer. She still takes the house and garden photographs for Benchmark House Histories, a company she established in 2010, producing books about the history of a client's home, alongside property historian Cathy Soughton.
