ARTIST STATEMENT

I am an Enamelist and metalsmith.

My passion is cloisonné enameling. A technique where either fine silver or 24K gold wire are formed in a design that is positioned on a base of fine silver. The enamels are packed in cloison cells to the top of the wires. Between each application the enamel is fired in a 1400-degree kiln 15 or more times. This provides shading, depth, and color.
The steps to reach the finished piece are labor intensive. After the firings, the piece must be ground down making all the areas even, to reach a finish that is smooth and reflexive.

A fabricated setting is made. I usually add semi-precious stones to my work. Each one-of-a-kind creation is made into a unique piece of wearable art.

I sell from my web site, galleries and shows. I also take special commissions.
