An original artwork, hand painted in reverse onto glass, with 23ct gold, enamels, mother of pearl inlays, and glitter.
This original artwork 100% handmade is inspired by water, its flow, smoothness and curves.
The first step was to draw the design by hand onto paper. because of the complexity of the design I hand-colored the letter, something unusual in my way of working. This allowed me to visualize better where to place the gold and different elements.
The design started with a block letter style, which has rigid and sharp angles. By incorporating waves, drops, water and air bubbles the letter was transformed creating the effect of motion through it. Once the design was ready, the first step done on the glass was to water gilding 23ct gold. the gold represents the sun, its heat and its brightness. The brush blended shadow represents the reflection of the sun shining on the water on a bright day. The mother of pear catches and reflects the light representing the shiny and dark world that lies underneath the water. Finally, the combination of different tones of glitter creates an effect similar to what you see on the surface of the water.
This original artwork is one of a kind and comes with its own certificate of authenticity.

"Thank you so much for bringing our vision to life. The real-leaf place cards turned out so well and we couldn't be happier. Some guests even took them home after the wedding as a souvenir or use them as a bookmark."
Joha did a great job for us on the main signage for the front facade Jenny Watts pub in Bangor. She was professional and helpful throughout. Highly recommended.
Joha is an incredible painter, I ordered two personalised bottles from her and absolutely love them. She takes care to make all of her commissions special, even the small ones. Will definitely be ordering from Joha again for presents etc
I contacted Joha for our cofee shop's fascia, logo and signages. I was very surprised how professional and efficient she was. Once she received the design brief and concept she got to work straight away. As client, I felt my ideas were taken on board and she really listened and was able to translate my ideas into reality.

I commissioned Jo to write out a poem in calligraphy, as a gift for a bride to be. I cannot fault her at all! She worked within a tight time frame, the writing was perfect and consistent throughout, and she advised on how to present the poem-framing it for me as well! I was delighted with the finished product-beautiful keepsake, professionally carried out!
