The New Lichen Collection
If you haven't guessed by now, I'm a bit of a nature lover. On a recent walk in the woods I was checking out the lichen growing on the rocks and fallen trees and began experimenting with ways to try and get similar results on metal.
Beginning with copper sheet, a form is cut out and 6-7 layers of enamel are applied with a firing after each one at 1500°. Other than a fairly good idea of the colors I'll get, there is no way to predict what'll happen in the kiln so it's always exciting when I pull it out of the kiln after the final firing.
I'm on my way outside to find some good granite to take some texture from (for the bail design I have planned) so look for pendants to match coming soon! Check out the Lichen Collection
