Vitreous enamel on copper with hand-strung beads
In a little hotplate on the kitchen table at age 12, Paula Sinclair learned to enamel. Self-taught and matured, she now designs statement necklaces. With transparent and opaque vitreous enamels fired at 1500° F. or more into a gooey orange-hot mass, she surrenders to the unexpectedness of the heat effects. Her abstracts, subtle or exuberant, often make light play through to the copper. Some are mounted with elegantly mismatched hand-strung beads.
Paula Sinclair continues to practice law, living primarily in Twin Falls and often “vacationing” in downtown Boise. Her work can be seen at Full Moon Gallery in Twin Falls.
