Enamoured of Enamels

Scrumptious is a word my Grandfather often used and as my eyes feast on the lustrous colours enamel jewellery offer they often do look good enough to eat!

The luscious jewel tones of opaque enamels are gorgeous. I often use fine art as inspiration while “painting” with translucent enamels and adore how luminous the fired pieces turn out. I am enchanted watching the enamel powders turn to glass when I use the torch for firing, and the richness of the enamels are even more radiant when they emerge from a firing in the kiln.
