Cup-cased Cameo 'The Fall' vase 20cm tall x 14.5cm
The very first pieces are 'All About Autumn' (New England Fall')
Moving forward from our very popular cup-cased cameo technique, we have been experimenting with overlaying multiple layers of both translucent and transparent enamels and combining with cased layers of gold and silver leaf. Inspired by the stunning, vibrant colours of autumn.
By combining numerous layers of both transparent and translucent enamels, once the surface has been carved and delicately shaded, combined with shifts of natural light, the vessels positively glow and creates a sumptuous, mystical and painterly effect. The technique demands careful consideration of compatible colours that will blend and fuse to create the desired result. The painstaking carving process requires intense concentration to ensure the design allows the vessel to come to life and a unique 3D vista is apparent from every angle viewed.
