"Miriam Ellner is a designer working in the unique field of Verre Eglomisé: the process of gilding precious metals on the reverse side of glass, etching in a design and setting it off with color. She is one of the few artists who has mastered this rare art form, and has been innovating and expanding upon it since 1990.
The beauty of this ancient medium is that it can be used to enliven any glass surface with a luminous, ethereal quality and transform a space dramatically. Miriam has used Eglomisé in a variety of ways, both modern and classic, with many diverse applications including curved ceilings, rooms of glass, sandwich doors, tables, glass paintings, powder rooms and elevator cabs.
As a designer, Miriam's skills are widely recognized and have led to exceptional collaborations with world renowned interior designers and architects. Her artistic integrity and unparalleled vision have enriched high profile projects from San Francisco to Moscow to build an extensive body of work."
