Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The classic art of enameling is experiencing a well-deserved renaissance—and its stunningly captured in this lovingly curated survey. More than 300 international contemporary artists have contributed museum-worthy pieces, which range in scale from David C. Fredas Green Slipper Brooch and Harlan W. Butts Maine Teapot to large sculptures and public art. Some of the creators take a minimalist approach, using only soft colors and matte finishes, while others exploit the materials vibrant palette and glass-like surface. The broad technical applications include everything from simple sifting and torch firing to complex cloisonné and plique-à-jour.

 

 

Book News Annotation:

Enameling is a technique traditionally used in jewelry and ornaments, but recently artists have applied the fusion of glass and metal to a range of media. Here American artist and teacher Sarah Perkins (art, Southwest Missouri State U.-Springfield) has collected color photographs, mostly by the artists themselves, of some innovative pieces. The art tends to be abstract or suggestive rather than representational. Comments by the artist are sometimes included. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
