fired enamels on metal Starting work on a piece of sculptural enamel, partially planned as part of a series of forms within a family where textural and graphic details overlap, and partially allowing the process and material to take its own life, this to me, is sheer bliss. It is the tactile equivalent of a musical composition based on a Raga but with ample space for innovation. I would say that the work done on the metal, the texturing, cutting, shaping, piercing and joining in copper gives me the dynamic satisfaction I need to constantly re-invent myself as an artist. Using steel as a base has another character altogether, and challenges the enamelist to go beyond the temptation of using it as a simple canvas, inviting multiple layerings and firings so that the character of the glass on metal is fully explored. The addition of colour is seductive and problematic, brought to life and conjoined to the base through the necessary ritual of fire.
