  • Beautiful… expensive… always…

    Enamel is always considers as a gem and it has its own beauty. That is why to have such work of art   from hot enamel is very prestigious. It underlines the nice artistic taste and high status of the owner of the work.

    Today it means that the enamel art has more than three thousand years of history. The oldest subjects with glass fusing metal for artistic purposes were found in Mycenae and on. Cyprus (15-14 in. BC. E.). Enamel was widely developed in Byzantium and China.

    Enamel is a fusion of glass with salts and oxides of various metals. The powder enamel is applied to the pretreated copper sheet, and then baked in a muffle furnace preheated to a temperature of 750-900 C °.

    You can get the whole range of color and tone density; it depends on what kind of the enamel do you use- from transparent to dense and from shiny and matte.The artist hasn’t opportunity to affect the interaction of the enamel, copper and high furnace temperature. He can only base on intuition, knowledge and experience, adjust the length and the firing temperature. These things form originality of each work from hot enamel. To repeat this work is almost impossible. That is why enamel is original and exists only in in a single copy. This kind of art is elitist. It combines the jeweler gem material with freedom of easel painting. The present of painting and pendent is a great and memorable gift and would be appreciated- beautiful… expensive… always…
