A NOTE FROM THE ARTIST ABOUT MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUE: "Enamel is a glass coating that is baked onto a metal surface, which can be iron, copper, silver, gold etc. 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 enamel is laid on the surface. This may be done by sifting, with a brush or with a spatula. Then at a high temperature- between 800 and 900 C- the coating is dissolved on the metal. The history of enamelling dates back several thousand of years. It was used by Egyptians and by Celtics, too. I use a paint-enamelling technique on my pictures. They are built up in layers which mean that a single peace may include from 10-20 wispy coats melted on each other."
