Welcome to my shop.
Coronavirus - In order to continue in business through the pandemic I have reduced my stock to items that I may send from a postbox to be delivered through the letterbox, using postage paid for online. I can put your purchase in the post within 24 hours of receiving your order. Your order will be securely wrapped and sent by ordinary first class post. Please bear in mind that there are postal delays throughout the country.
All my work is glass enamel on a copper base. I buy the copper shapes and then build up and fire the multiple layers of enamel that decorate them. There is always a layer of enamel on the reverse. This balances the tension to which the decorated surface may be subjected as layers are added to it. It also means that generally there is bare copper copper only on the edges of the shape or where it has been scraped away allow me to solder a brooch bar.
I am happy to consider special requests and commissions. Contact me through folksy
If you experience any difficulty in placing an order please let me know.
This blue parrot has a scrolled pattern in pink and white drawn through it. This is done by pulling a steel tip through the enamel while it is red hot in the kiln. An extreme version of feather icing.
The parrot measures 54mm from head to tail, 15mm across its shoulders.
The parrot is counter enamelled. It is mounted on silver plate 45cm (18 inch) curb chain fastened with a simple bolt ring.
The scrolling technique lends itself well to decorating the parrot shape. My inspiration for the parrot shape was doing craft fairs in the bird garden at Lotherton Hall, Leeds.
