These bowls are my contemporary take on aging and patination. Unlike the rest of my work, where I have total control, the enamelling process I use means I cannot predict the end result, each bowl is unique with a natural feel to it, this is what really appeals to me.
The contrast between the enamelled and the copper makes these bowls very satisfying to handle, which is important to my work. My designs should be equally as pleasing to use, hold, and look at.
The bowls were finalists in the National Trust/Crafts Council Open Call 2017 - see here
During the enameling process the copper oxidises (blackens) and while the enamel will not change, the black will gradually lessen over time, returning to its original copper colour.
A selection of these bowls are available to buy here. If you do not see a size or style you would like, please feel free to contact me.
