Description

This beautiful abstract piece is a work of art in itself. The wrinkled, convex drop shape dangles are painted with a special enamel technique. Each compartment of "caused" by the wrinkles is colored a different shade but the overall look is kept muted, a truly sophisticated and artsy piece.

What is enamel?

Enamel is a glass coating that is baked onto a metal surface.

However, this procedure is not as easy as it sounds. The “glass” is ground and it comprises various metal oxides. It is these oxides that generate the colours.
The metal surface can be of all kinds: iron, copper, silver, gold etc. The enamel is laid on the surface. This may be done by sifting, with a brush or with a spatula depending on the requirements of the situation. Then at a high temperature – between 800 and 900 °C – the coating is dissolved on the metal.

The history of enamelling dates back thousands of years. 

It was used by Egyptians and by Celtics, too. During the time of the Roman Empire, Byzantium was the reputed centre of enamelling.
The enamel-technique used by me is similar to the French Limoges paint-enamel type developed in the 16-17th centuries but it is not the same.
Every enamel artist uses the knowledge accumulated throughout thousands of years and enriches it with new methods based upon his/her personal experiments. The possibilities in enamelling are endless. Throughout a lifetime one can learn just a couple of enamelling procedures.
