An introduction, an inspiration, instruction .
on 6 September 2003
How wonderful to find in one book everything you could possibly need to learn and marvel at this enthralling subject. How clever of the author to appeal to and inform the beginner with clear and inspirational descriptions of the many methods of enamelling, without either talking down in over-patronising simplicity, or scaring off with jargon and complexity. The photographs of contemporary work, the history of ancient and modern methods and materials, the elegant incorporation of all the above into each page to illustrate particular techniques makes this an invaluable reference for the know-all and the know-nothing. Quite an achievement. I wish I'd discovered enamelling years ago, and now that I have, this book will be a constant source of help and inspiration.
