Seaturtle on Shell Base
Sea turtle crafted in glass enamels on sea shell base.
The process includes vitreous enamel (which is pulverized glass) applied by hand, using a delicate sprinkling method, layer upon layer, over solid copper. Fired by the intense heat of kilns, the enamels flow and combine. Emerging from the kiln molten ruby-red, then cooling to reveal both vibrant and subtle hues of color. This process may be repeated several times before the desired effect is achieved.
