I use vitreous enamel on copper primarily in my jewelry making and have carried that medium over to my painting practice. Building up multiple layers, sifted enamel is applied and kiln fired before the next layer is applied. The finished piece is chemically etched and hand polished to give the surface a dreamy matte finish. I live in the Sebago Lake region of Maine where I maintain a studio for my enamel jewelry and fine art practice in what was my late father’s studio. I enjoy using the vintage enamel powders, supplements, and tools that he had used when he was making enamel jewelry.
