Vitreous enamel on copper
Vitreous enamel powders in Mother Nature’s wildflower colors surround delicate floral millefiori in a precise impressionistic miniature landscape. All are carefully kiln fired and fused to pure copper at 1500 F. in an ̊ uncharacteristically controlled fashion to preserve the floral forms from the corrupting influence of excess heat.
At 12 years in a hotplate on the kitchen table Paula Sinclair learned to fuse glass to copper. Largely self taught and long past middle age, she now designs statement necklaces. By kiln-firing colored glass at 1500̊ F. into a gooey orange-hot mass, she surrenders to the unexpectedness of the heat efects. Subtle or exuberant, her style is abstract. Light plays through to the copper. Many of her designs are mounted with elegantly mismatched hand-strung beads.
Paula Sinclair continues to practice law in Twin Falls. Her work can be seen at Full Moon Gallery there and in TVAA exhibits.
