I began enamelling after inspiration from a friend who I worked with to develop their engraving talent. I loved the way that colour could bring to life the intricate detailing of engraving. I still enjoy experimenting with the use of colour to enrich the meaning of a piece.
The traditional enamelling techniques that I use are developing the flare of the pieces that I today produce. I enjoy experimenting with colour and developing my skills further. Enamelling is very much an experimental process, colours can be difficult to repeat; however, I believe this unique finish compliments the handmade approach that I take.
I am a member of the ‘Enamellers Guild of Great Britain’.
