Enamel| Table Top and Wall Art
“There are many things in my life that inspire my art ~ motorcycle trips, the Earth, my farm, memories, hope and color. These are all one of a kind works of art.”
These enameled pieces come from my imagination that are inspired from things I see, feel and experience designed for the tabletop and or wall. What you see here are pieces Amy has created and have been sold. They are shown as examples.
Each piece of copper is either hammered, cut, or bent into free form shapes before being enameled. From this process there will be occasionally small stress cracks – it is part of the enameling process in this case. They are all counter enameled to minimize the stress between the copper and glass enamel. These pieces are fired between the temperatures of 1300 – 1500 degrees for each color to achieve the effects shown. Each piece is then titled and signed by the artist. If at any time you would like to have one of these items and they are marked “Sold” just let me know and sometimes I can create another piece that is like it. But never would I reproduce anything just like it.
If ever a piece is dropped or stepped on thus causing the enamel to crack and fall off I can fire the enamel and if needed apply more enamel. In most cases I can repair the damage at a very low cost or at no cost. Just pay for the shipping/mailing of the piece to me and then back to you. Please understand there will be a small change in the looks, but very little.
The copper enamels are not intended for ashtrays or food use please.
