Precious land

A few years ago I worked on a series of enamelled panels called 'Precious Land' based on the landscape around my studio.  This was followed by a collection of pieces of enamelled jewellery developed with the assistance of an Arts Council grant.  I have decided that it is time to return to this theme, been thinking about it for some time and am excited by the new possibilities as my work has definitely changed over the intervening period.

Here is one of the original pieces, enamel on copper and probably dating from around 2002.
