Welcome to my shop. Everything I make is a one-off. If something has caught your attention but isn't quite what you had in mind then get in touch to see if I have anything similar not yet out on the shelves or to see if I can make one to your order.
All my work is glass enamel on a copper base. I buy the copper shapes and then build up and fire layers of enamel that decorated over 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 or to remove rough protusions from the base of a bowl or dish.
This pair of earrings features my painting of aa tall ship at sea. After building up several layers of white enamel on the copper oval, to provide a base on which to paint, I have painted the pictures, using tablets of finely ground enamel, soluble in water, to produce a glaze over the white. When the picture was finished I fired it as I would any other enamel piece but taking particular care not to overfire and so burn out the thin layer of glaze that makes the picture, The work I do in this way I sign with my initials, FH. This signature may be seen at the bottom of the two pictures that make up the earrings.
The ovals measure 18mm by 13mm. They are mounted on silver fish-hook wires.

The Tees Valley has a long history of shipbuilding and sea-faring and when the Maritime Museum at Hartlepool's Historic Quay first opened I had enamels on sale there. This was the beginning of my interest in painting nautical subjects on enamels.
