Mole Browne, a graduate of London’s City And Guilds School Of Art, specialises in verre églomisé, an ancient technique popularised in mid- 18th century France by Jean-Baptiste Glomy. In this process gold and silver leaf is applied to the reverse side of glass creating a painterly yet reflective surface.
Her stunningly beautiful pieces have graced the homes and offices of clients from all over the world: sometimes purely decorative, sometimes incorporating a functionality that compliments the beauty and totally transforms a room, such as forming screens, wall coverings, over-mantle mirrors and even as part of the furniture.
Mole sees a certain duality in her work. On the one hand giving her imagination complete free rein for her non-commissioned work and, on the other, working closely with clients to fully understand and interpret their wishes in order to fulfill the brief to their satisfaction.
More recently, Mole has been exploring the field of 3D effect in her work. This exciting and novel technique might involve up to four layers of partially-gilded glass, giving a sense of depth and movement evoking a stage set.
