I am interested in enamel – mainly in making jewellery at the moment. I find the process of creating enamelled objects fascinating, the results are so difficult to reproduce and even when I think I have done exactly the same thing twice the results can be quite different.
I work with both copper and silver, I prefer using transparent enamels either with cloisonne wires or etching or engraving patterns underneath.
I’d like to be able to say where I draw inspiration from, but honestly I have no idea. I just wake up with a thought about what to do, sometimes it turns out to be rubbish and sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes I wake up with no ideas – in which case I just spend more time in the garden.
