About Enamelling

All my Enamel Art and Jewellery is made using traditional skills and techniques at my studio in Surrey, England. I like to make work that is original, fun and of course unique. Enamelling is essentially the art of fusing of glass to metal, using a kiln, firing around 800°C – 1000°C. Each firing lasts only around a minute, but each piece will have multiple firings, typically anything from six, to a dozen and more. A few seconds too long and a piece can be irredeemably damaged making it an exciting and potentially fraught experience. Blending and shading different enamels to build up veils of colour in order to convey mood and feeling, never fails to fill me with excitement and anticipation as no two are ever identical. My enamels  include jewellery, dishes, bowls, wall art clocks and panels. All are handmade individually with love and care.  I welcome commissions and will be delighted to discuss with you the designing and making of a special piece. If you see something you like on my website, please contact me to see if it is still available.
