Two different methods are used to create these glass enamel pieces. In the first gallery collection, layers of opaque and transparent enamels sandwich embossed Japanese Ginbari fine silver foil. The pieces are baked after the application of each layer of materials to fuse them together. The pieces in the second collection are torch fired. Each side of the piece is heated with fire to fuse the powdered glass to the metal and each successive layering of powdered or solid glass. The resulting pieces of each are eye-catching, smooth to the touch, and textured in its appearance.
