ENAMEL - ENAMEL



The finishing touches have been made, I am particularly pleased with the sand blasted moth details, not quite through to the metal. It gives a lovely grainy, mat surface to the enamel. I have also sandblasted the enamel away on the back of the piece.
Now I have finish the concertina book I am now turning my energies onto developing the spiral bound note books. This is the first experiment.



About 3ins x 2ins, this book is made of steel and uses a variety of enamel techniques

Again I am exploring sandblasting images into the enamel surface.

The Twenty Twenty Gallery at Much Wenlock, Shropshire has just taken delivery of these beetle spoons, it is a lovely gallery and Much Wenlock is a great place for a day out.

The spiral bound books are divine! I keep meaning to e mail and ask about Cardiff. Was it worth the trip?

Superb!!!! Now I feel far away and annoyed that I can't just pop round and have a really close look.

All your work is stunning, but this concertina book has really "got" me.
I'll be in England in May - will they be exhibited anywhere?
