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 brooch is 30mm square. It is mounted on a 26mm brooch bar, soldered to the copper base. The pin secures with a rotating catch.
I made it by first building up several layers of enamel, each fired separately, on the copper shape. I fired a layer of red enamel over this. The copper base shows through the red in tones of golden-brown. I fired rods of turquoise, dark blue and yellow enamel over the red and disturbed the surface while the piece was at red hot in the kiln to create the random swirled patterns. The enamel cools as soon as the kiln door is opened and sets unevenly but smoothly, contributing a tactile element to the finished piece that interferes with the play of light to generate additional effects in the colour of the piece.
Your brooch will be sent boxed.
For UK delivery I use Royal Mail, first class, signed for; for european delivery, international signed for. if you prefer another delivery service please contact me.
