Cas Pollen is a designer working in the unique field of Verre Eglomise, the process of gilding precious metals on the reverse side of clear glass creating a soft mirrored effect.
Her degree in Decorative Arts at City and Guilds London Art School lead her on to apprenticeships in both restoration and gilding.
Over the years her craft has taken her to restoring Gilded 18th century rooms in Madrid, to setting up a furniture paint workshop in Ho Chi Min,Vietnam.
She is now based in NW London where she produces exquisite decorative glass panels and bespoke Mirrors for interior designers and individual private commissions.
The beauty of this ancient medium is that it can be used to enliven any glass surface with a luminous, etheral quality and transform a space dramatically.
Cas has used Eglomise in a variety of ways, both modern and classic, with many diverse applications including curved ceilings, rooms of glass and tabletops.
