Charles Douglas, Gilder

Charles Douglas, a gold leaf gilder in private practice in the Pacific Northwest, specializes in custom gilding and restoration of gilded frames, furniture, architectural, and sacred gilding. Located along the northern tip of Lake Union in Seattle, Charles' focus includes glass gilded mirrors based on the beautiful gilding art form of verre églomisé, the method which began his gilding career over 34 years ago as a member of the Visual Merchandising store opening team at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York. His diverse selections of projects extend from luxury yachts and residences to liturgical gilding and altars.

Charles is a committed teacher of the gilding arts and offers classes in traditional water gilding, oil gilding, and glass gilding in such cities as Seattle, New York, Louisville, and Owen Sound, Ontario. To further support the continued growth of gilding students, Charles publishes the Gilding Arts Newsletter with membership now to over 700 members in twenty countries.
