Enamels by Susan Mannion
I work with enamel on copper and steel on flat plates or three dimensional forms, such as the vessels in the examples below. The enamel is applied to the metal surface as a very finely ground glass powder and the piece is then heated in a kiln or furnace at 950 degrees celsius until the powdered glass melts and becomes liquid. This forms a skin on the surface of the metal.
The following are just a few examples of my work.
