More in the Enamel Trail
by Dianne Jacques.
The enamel obsession continues!
A while back I became enamored with enamel work and have continued to explore, experiment and play with different types of enamel work.
For my Lichen series I begin with a layer of opaque enamel, then apply a layer of crackle followed by another coat of opaque and then usually a transparent.
Between each coat they get fired in the kiln at 1500°.
After grinding off all the excess glass and sanding the edges so they’re silky smooth they’re all ready to go.
I am working n a collaboration with Door 44 in Colorado to make some interesting bails for the pendants.
