About Linda Connelly Enamels

Linda Connelly Enamels

Art with Enamel infused with stories, memories and dreams.

Linda is an Enamel Artist and Jeweller. All her pieces are handmade by her from her studio in Surrey under the watchful eye of Jyp the dog, her workshop 'assistant'. Linda's work is Vitreous Enamel which is fusing glass to metal in a kiln. Each piece is fired multiple times, for around one or two minutes each time, at between 800 and 1000 degrees C. She loves and is inspired by the endless variety of colour and texture that can be achieved. She makes use of a variety of techniques ranging from traditional ones like cloisonné and champleve, to more contemporary and experimental ones including sgraffitto, the use of wet process enamels and decals. She likes to incorporate hand engraving under the enamel to enhance the piece and catch the light. Blending and shading different enamels to build up veils of colour to convey mood and feeling never fails to provoke excitement and anticipation as no two pieces are ever completely identical.

Linda's work is informed by memory and stories. She seeks to incorporate and encapsulate these to inspire and define their wearer. She is inspired by her own travels in India and recent visits to Venice and Sicily together with the natural world, particularly pebbles and fossils which remind her of childhood holidays on the Isle of Wight and the Jurassic coast.

Linda is a member of the Surrey Guild of Craftsmen, the Sussex Guild, Association of Contemporary Jewellers, Guild of Enamellers and the British Society of Enamellers.
