500 Enameled Objects
A Celebration of Color on Metal

Marthe Lee Van, Editor

The classic art of enameling is experiencing a well-deserved renaissance-and it's stunningly captured in this lovingly curated survey. More than 300 international contemporary artists have contributed museum-worthy pieces, which range in scale from David C. Freda's Green Slipper Brooch and Harlan W. Butt's Maine Teapot to large sculptures and public art.

Some of the creators take a minimalist approach, using only soft colors and matte finishes, while others exploit the material's vibrant palette and glass-like surface. The broad technical applications include everything from simple sifting and torch firing to complex cloisonné and plique-à-jour.
