Priest has always had a love a texture.  In this series of works she challenged herself by working on a slick surface  with  a technique  called Verre Églomisé, a French term referring to the decorative arts process of applying both a design and gilding onto the rear face of the glass to produce a mirror like finish on the other side. Priest’s aim is to create visually tactile surfaces to delight the eyes.
