Artfest Holmfirth 16th & 17th November 2019

I’m nearly ready for Artfest Holmfirth 16th & 17th November. I’ve finished a few new enamelled copper bowls and now need to sort out a small collection of jewellery pieces. It’s many years since I’ve taken part in pre-Christmas shows but it looks like it will be a great weekend.
There should be something to appeal to everyone and it’s all completely handmade and unique; the best kind of gift or even a treat for yourself

This is one of the most recent, finished yesterday

Getting ready for Art& at York Racecourse

Tom and I are getting ready for Art& at York Racecourse next weekend. We will, be there with a great selection of bowls. They are all enamel on copper and vary from the subtle to vivid colours in a variety of shapes and sizes.

They will include some of our most recent bowls with designs inspired by trees.

We’re looking forward to meeting lots of visitors and explaining the processes involved in creating these unique and carefully crafted pieces https://www.artand.co.uk/our_exhibitors/glazzard-and-lundsten/

Enamelled bowls

Tom and I have been working on some new bowls over the last few days. It’s always interesting to work together on these. At one stage I really liked this first bowl but Tom thought it should have more colour. Three firings later with the addition of red, orange and yellows and neither of us liked it.! Anyway a layer of transparent flux T232 was added and it was fired again, at a much higher temperature and for longer. After that it became much more subtle and very pleasing to both of us.

It’s great having someone to collaborate with and I’m certainly more productive sharing ideas

New ideas


I’ve spent a couple of days here in Hunmanby trying out some new ideas and Tom has been working over in Denmark finishing a few more pieces of enamel jewellery from our pebble range. We will both be teaching etching and enamelling silver here in my studio in Hunmanby next week. There’s still a place available or the two day workshop 16th an 17th February 2019, £300 including some materials. Use the contact form if you’re interested in taking this exciting class!

Teaching and Learning – a love of enamel

I had a wonderful day on Friday teaching Clare a little bit about cloisonné enamelling. She used premade fine silver blanks and working from her little sketches I showed her how to break an image down into sections to form the fine silver wires. I then demonstrated how to lay them into the piece and use clear enamel (flux) to hold them in position before drying and firing them in the kiln.

Clare made a little test piece first (bottom right) to practice wet laying the colours and then worked carefully to build up the layers of enamels in each cell, drying and firing them as she went along throughout the day. Finally she ground the surfaces of the pieces back so that they were completely smooth and level and refined them in the kiln to get the gloss back. She was very happy with what she’d learned and achieved in this one day workshop.

I have some dates free in the next two weeks and in early March if you’d like to try this wonderful and addictive craft. It’s £170 including materials – please just use the contact form if you’d like to book.

There is still a place available on the two day course Etching and Enamelling on silver with Tom Lundsten on the 16th and 17th February 2019, here in my studio in Hunmanby, Filey. It’s £300 for the two days including materials (Examples below). Again please use the contact form if you’re interested.

I look forward to seeing you!

Enamel on silver

I had a great day yesterday teaching an introduction to enamel on silver. Ian had done quite a bit of reading and had an idea of what he’d like to do. We covered quite a lot in the day including preparing, testing and applying the colours; making shapes with fine silver wire then applying and firing the enamels. Finally the pieces were stoned back and refired. Ian was very happy with what he achieved and hopefully he has begun a new adventure.

I teach this on a regular basis – just use the contact form if you’re interested.

There is still a place available on the two day course with Tom Lundsten to learn etching silver and enamelling. This is on 16th and 17th February in my studio in Hunmanby, near Filey, North Yorkshire. It is £300 for the two days, including some materials. Contact me if you’d like to book a place
