I know, I can't seem to stop myself at the moment. I can fit these label shaped pieces of copper or steel, 4cm x 8.5cm into my kiln. It is a bit like working pages of my sketch book. Layering, scraping back adding silver and gold leaf and then reworking.
These were directly inspired by my holiday in fossil filled Dorset.
The piece on the left started out as the piece of copper at the top of this post.
I am beginning to amass a body of enamelled work but I am still struggling with the one off nature of each piece. I can't quite shake off the printmaker in me. I think it is safe to say I am stirred by this technique...sorry!!
