This hardcover book, The Art of Enameling by Linda Darty, mixes clear instruction on the various techniques with wild, inspiring photos of completed pieces. The various styles range from traditional cloisonné, champlevé, and plique-à-jour to experimental techniques such as firing enamel onto mesh forms.
Linda Darty is the head of the metals program and professor of metalworking and enameling at the School of Art and Design at East Carolina University. She has exhibited her work here in the United States and abroad, and is featured in numerous publications. As an educator and an artist, Darty is uniquely suited to present the 14 projects described in this book.
Please take your time with the photos, and consider them part of the description. This book is in good condition with the original dust jacket intact. There are no markings noted on the pages, and there is no inscription. Let me know if you have any questions and feel free to check out the many treasures available in my shop! Purchases from the WhyteWing website benefit The Trevor Project, but if you are more comfortable making your purchase on a platform like Etsy, this Darty enamel book is listed there as well.
