Jenny Gore Enamel

Jenny Gore OAM is an Adelaide artist who works in the specialised area of enamelling.  Enamelling is a magical process to watch and the finished work is always unique due to the delicate technique and multiple firings.

“Enamel is glass with the addition of fluxes to lower its melting point, and oxides to colour it. It is fired for around three minutes in a kiln to fuse it to metal which can be copper, silver, gold or steel, with firing temperatures between 700 and 900 degrees Celsius. Some objects are fired just a few times while others, mainly panels, can have up the 30 or more firings to achieve the final result. This can be an elusive process, sometimes weeks of work can be spoiled by a fraction too long in the kiln or from the temperature climbing a little too high.” Jenny Gore Enamel
