Shop Announcement:

Welcome to my shop.

Coronavirus - In order to continue in business through the pandemic I have reduced my stock to items that I may send from a postbox to be delivered through the letterbox, using postage paid for online. I can put your purchase in the post within 24 hours of receiving your order. Your order will be securely wrapped and sent by ordinary first class post. Please bear in mind that there are postal delays throughout the country.

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.

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.

About ThatENAMELGuy

ThatENAMELGuy

I make 'one of a kind' jewellry and ornaments by manipulating glass enamel over a copper base.

I have been working in enamels for thirty years, learning as I go. I particularly like to use the scrolling technique. This is where I draw through the final layer while the piece is in the kiln, red hot, to stir the colours about and make random patterns. The enamel has the texture of sticky toffee and will start to set as the temperature of the kiln falls while the kiln door is open; consequently my window of opportunity is very narrow but I have no way to predict how narrow. Two further complications, different enamels have subtly different melting points and at red hot all the colours on the piece look the same so even when I can see the work I can't distingush the colours. Essentially I see myself as having an idea of the finished piece but being allowed to achieve only what the kiln and the materials allow me to get away with. Each result is unique. The nearer I get to my idea the happier I am but if I am disappointed I console myself with the knowledge that there is a masterpiece lurking in the kiln if I can only capture it.
