From the Author

Enameling on metal is not difficult. It is an exacting art which demands careful attention to such details as cleaning, application and firing, but it cannot be called “hard to do.” In my opinion a technical process such as enameling becomes as “easy” or “hard” to do as the one doing it makes it for himself. If one proposes to be an artist, he never considers such an ambiguous term, but works with only one idea in mind; that is, to finish to his own satisfaction the present piece of work so that he may be released to start the next. There can be no termination to art endeavor, for, especially after finishing an enamel, there are always variations of color, texture and motif which come to one’s mind. The process of making and firing an enamel, therefore, constitutes a truly creative activity.
