JANE WILLS ENAMELS
Jane enamels on copper, creating distinctive colourful jewellery and a range of enamelled copper bowls, leaves and dishes.
Initially inspired by a visit to an exhibition to see some of the world’s best enamels in Limoges, she had to wait until the end of a fulfilling career in education to begin to explore and experiment with enamelling.
She grew up in a house surrounded by all sorts of textiles and a family history, through the generations, of working with metal. These elements all seem to have come together to inspire Jane’s enamelling journey.
Jane’s work can be found in many countries and has been exhibited in various Fairs, Trails and shops in the South West.
This year at Artport Jane will be exhibiting a new collection of ‘Painting in a Copper Pot’. A range of small bowls with up to 10 layers of enamel (coloured glass), fired at 900 degrees or more, to produce some
extraordinary effects. There will be some enamel copper dishes from the Cosmos range and many more .
She will be exhibiting pendants, bracelets, earrings and brooches. These will be enamelled on both copper and fine silver.
