Memories fade, golden moments, history and erosion

I am having a break from my usual work and playing around with ideas. Here are two very small enamels on copper. They have been enamelled, stoned back, sketched onto with pencil, enamelled some more and then had flecks of gold leaf and a layer of flux fired on. I have then carefully sanded them back to create a matte and eroded look. I have always been fascinated by the idea that our memories fade and alter or perhaps even become enhanced to become those 'golden moments'. I'm not sure where these experiments will take me but will keep these two pieces on my work table for a while and think about it some more.
