Enamelling is the art of fusing glass to metal at high temperatures, using a kiln. We’ll be exploring enamelling step by step, learning to fuse finely powdered enamel onto the surface of copper to create a beautiful glossy glassy surface. These ancient techniques were first used by the Chinese, Greeks, Celts and Egyptians to decorate metal and add colour to metal jewellery and other precious objects.
Lynette works with both silver and copper. She has recently begun to expand her collection to include pieces with vitreous enamel on copper, applying layers of enamel, often high fired to create spectacular colours resulting from the interaction with the copper oxides.
Lynette studied at the Shrewsbury College of Arts. She is a member of the Guild of Enamellers and achieved craftsman through the guilds selection process.
Her work includes a range of jewellery, wall panels, and 3D pieces. A key theme of Lynette’s work is texture, and nature. She develops collections in her Shropshire based workshop, drawing upon the wonderful ever-changing country side around her.
