Abstract: My thesis explores the topic of creating dimensional enamel forms through the use of experimental enameling techniques. While the pieces are based on the foundation of basic enameling, I pushed the material's limits to make the enamel come off the surface of the metal. These techniques allow me to create a visual energy on the surface of the copper with glass. I placed the enamels in sterling silver settings to make each one a wearable piece of jewelry. The jewelry pieces make up three series of work: Potential Energy, Contained Energy, and Free Radical.
