Copper enamelling - essentially, the melting of glass enamel grains onto a copper surface - is an exciting and fascinating technique. Enamelling on Copper highlights the unique interactions between copper and enamels, and gives a detailed account of working with this wonderful combination. The basic technique - simply sifting ground enamels onto a copper surface and firing the two in a kiln for one minute - is a thrilling experience, but delving deeper into the techniques pays even greater rewards. AUTHOR: Pat Johnson discovered the beautiful medium of melted coloured grains of enamel on copper as a young woman. The process was very quick and soon she was making and selling small enamelled pendants. During this time she developed her techniques to make virtually any kind of enamelled design. Pat spent several years experimenting to see if enamelling was as much an art form as painting. She challenged herself to work in diverse styles ranging from realistic images to abstract art, and received commissions to make murals on large scale steel panels. Pat then spent twenty years working in the premises of industrial enamelling firms and producing public murals. Throughout her career, Pat Johnson has taught enamelling on copper at West Dean College. The discoveries that have come out of these classes have contributed largely to her understanding of the behaviour of enamels and enamelling techniques. SELLING POINTS: A practical book to mastering the art of enamelling on copper and discovering its beauty and potential. Will be of great interest to all enamellers, jewellers and metal workers at all levels. The potential of this art form is immense and this book guides you through the many effects that can be achieved. Beautifully illustrated with 226 colour photographs. Pat Johnson is a leading artist and has taught enamelling on copper at West Dean College. 226 colour photographs
