Vitreous enamel consists of finely ground glass powder that I sift over hand cut copper shapes. This is then carefully heated with a plumbers torch to reach1500 degrees. At that temperature, the powdered glass liquifies, and for the crackle technique it spreads, forming a distinct pattern. The pieces are then allowed to slow cool for several hours after which time the glass is permanently adhered to the metal underneath.
In an unusual combination of rich red and sage green, the ‘crackle’ effect of the enamels comes into play producing a one of a kind pattern. Hints of yellow and white form tiny bubble like dots in the glass giving a very organic feel. Olive green Czech crystals and copper ear wires complete the look.
