Enameling on metal is an ancient art form which has developed through thousands of years at the hands of artisans as they used the medium to express their creativity. Vitreous enamel is essentially crushed glass the consistency of sand to a fine powder. It is worked into pastes using various binders or is carefully sifted onto metal substrates by the artist. The piece is then fired at very high temperatures until the enamel begins to flow and adhere to the surface. #glasslovesmetal
