reve(name)lations ...

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege to attend a workshop by the renowned enamel specialist Elizabeth Turrell (UK) in Perth, as a part of the JMGA conference. It was an amazing experience. Hello fellow enamelists around Australia and back in Bristol : ) A fellow jeweller, Melissa Cameron, talks about the workshop in her blog, too, and check out the beautiful images of work also!

In short, liquid enamel on steel is my new passion. It is like painting and drawing, but on metal and glass. I love it.

Here are a few small samples (90 x 90 mm) from the three intensive and unforgettable days, and a very recent attempt (this afternoon at rmit) which began my experiments with enamel on 3D steel objects, for a silversmithing research project.
