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 In the current COVID lockdown I am restricting my shop to items I feel I can send from a post-box. All items are sent by Royal Mail First Class Large Letter. Additional items post free. This is not a tracked service.
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.
To make this bear I built up several layers of clear enamel over the copper shape I then applied a coat of white to the body, blanking off the head, hands and paws; after firing that I applied the maroon coat, again blanking off the head, and paws. I left some of the white coat showing through. I then applied a coat of red brown enamel over the whole of the shape.
The maroon coat prvides depth to the tones of the red brown over the bear's body. The bear shimmers in the light. The copper base adds flecks of golden brown through the red brown coat, lightening the colour over the head and paws, and the white enamel adds some highlights in the darker coat over the bear's body
The bear measures 34mm head to foot, 25mm across the outstretched arms. I have mounted the pendant on a 45cm silver plate, curb chain; it secures with a simple bolt ring.
