Shop Announcement:

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.

Description

This parrot measures 54mm long, 16mm at its widest. I have mounted it on a 26mm brooch bar. The pin fastens with a rotating catch..

To make it I first built up a base of clear enamel over the copper shape. I then added a layer of turquoise enamel. Over that I scattered small heaps of red and white enamel and when the parrot was red hot in the kiln I drew through the yellow with a steel point to add the plumage to the bird.

Your parrot will come boxed.
