The painted work starts with an under painting that establishes a texture and a rough pattern. The heat of the kiln fuses layers of enamel (powdered glass) on to a metal base creating a translucent color field. More complex pieces may have between 20 to 30 firings in the kiln to enhance the depth and bleeding of the brush strokes. Because each enamel piece is unique and the results are always different, no two painted pieces can be exactly alike.
