Shop Announcement:

Welcome to my shop.

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.

POSTAGE All items are sent by Royal Mail First Class Large Letter, signed for. Additional items post free.

I am happy to consider special requests and commissions. Contact me through folksy.

Description

After building up a base of several layers of clear enamel on the copper dish I have added a coat of red enamel. After firing that coat I scattered white enamel powder around the centre and added amethyst enamel to it. The amethyst is transparent and needs to be fired over white to be seen. When the dish was at red hot in the kiln I disturbed the surface of the enamel with a steel point to make the unique patterning that you see. The dish is counter -enamelled; a coat of enamel on the reverse, the second coat I apply when building up the layers, balances the tensions of expansion and contraction as the dish id developed. This coat will show marks of the stilt or trivet used to hold the piece at a minimum number of points while it is fired.
The dish measures 85mm in diameter and is about 20mm deep. It would be suitable for a dressing table tray or to set off a flower display or table centrepiece.
Your dish will be sent, well wrapped, by Royal Mail, first class, signed (UK) for or by international signed for (Europe). If you prefer another delivery service please contact me before placing your order.
If you experience any difficulty placing an order please contact me through folksy to sort it out.
