Remember at the beginning of November, the post, Great Expectations I proudly announced that I had undertaken a commission for Cheltenham Connect. 3 enamel panels that would celebrate 200 years of trading on the Bath Road, Cheltenham. Well that project is progressing.
Rachel and I had a very exciting day working with John at Hy-Tech Enamelling Ltd, www.hytechenamellers.co.uk having a practice before launching onto the large panels in May.
I have cut stencils which Rachel and I will be drawing through
onto the bisque enamel (that is as technical as I will get).
The panels are then put on a continuous conveyor
and taken through the furnace and fired at 800 degrees
An extraordinary sight.
Rachel and I now know what to expect. John and his team were really welcoming and generous with their expertise. I am so looking forward to working on the real thing.
