Enamel art from Rob Lamper

Enamels are designs made from milled glass powder on copper plate.
After applying the powder by means of sprinkling, painting or working with templates, it is baked in a special kiln at a temperature of around 800 degrees.
I figured out the whole process myself with trial and error.

My inspiration comes largely from my background in photography, in which I worked for about 40 years.
I prefer special lighting, poses and the color blue.
I try to suggest a strong image with as little information as possible.

Due to the small size of my oven (inner size 10x15 cm) I build most workpieces from parts, so that I still achieve an end result of a larger size.
In practice, this "handicap" has meant that I can also achieve the intended result by even omitting certain parts. 

Not everything works out as I had ment, so  sometimes I had some enameled left overs.
I clean those by bending them so enameled cracks off.
I can use those to build other art like the houses.

In short, enamelling, a wonderful technique with pitfalls and setbacks, but these can also be played creatively.
