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.

Topics covered include:

  • Full account of different kinds of enamels and how they work together
  • Instructions on how to work with an enamelling kiln, including temperatures and timings
  • Advice on the enamelling process and how to control small sifted particles of the glass enamels to achieve your designs
  • Examples of enamelling effects and uses, including making gradations of colours, a range of textures, realistic images, large wall sculptures and enamel bowls

" The simple title, Enamelling on Copper, suggests the two most important aspects of this landmark book. But while this book was ostensibly written for beginners, it has much to offer to those who have been enameling for a long time. The sheer depth of her technical knowledge, and her detailed explanations of how enamels interact with each other and with copper, make this book a must-have for any serious enamelist. "
