Record Type: concept
gold glass (visual works) (glassware, <visual works by material or technique>, ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Glass objects that are decorated with designs cut or engraved in gold leaf and sandwiched between two fused layers of clear glass. Prime examples are Hellenistic and ancient Roman bowls and plates. In order to fit together, the inner and outer bowls or plates had to be made to an exact and predetermined shape and size, by a hot process that included slumping the glass into or over a ceramic mold or form. The gold foil decoration was stuck to the outer wall of the inner bowl or other shape, using an adhesive such as gum arabic. The two glass bowls or plates were then fused together by heating in a kiln.
