Broche for Mother's day Wednesday, July 30, 20140

Broche for Mother's day

Hi Ton

You have done a wonderful donation for the schools were I did a workshop enameling for mother’s day.
It was busy here on this side and I was waiting for the stories I had to get from the schools.
Of course many thanks for your donation!
We could not manage to get such a nice day without it.

The fishes were not so easy to enamel the thin tails were bending while enameling only on one side.
However It ended all ok.
I have heard from many mothers that this was a terrific present and so much different than the usual paper work children make at school…

Great!!!

Canal house

Lately I got a card with a moving annoucement in my mailbox.
You can see on the picture within a glimpse that this young couple are very proud on their new home.
It is a beautifull canalhouse to see.
When I was a small kid I  played with friends over there and fished in the canals.
It crossed never in my mind that I would be remembered on this time in such a way.
It is a inspiring source to do something with it.

Enamel and Etching Monday, July 9, 20120

Enamel and Etching

I attend a course "silversmith" for several years now.
On a day I saw some examples of enamel art.
So I decided to try this out myself.
After some experiments I discovered that transparent enamels get color differenced if the copper has an uneven surface.
This brought me the idea to combine the etching of copper with enamel.
