Enamel – the fusion of glass onto metal is a craft which has fascinated Penny Gildea for many years and she is an active member of both the Guild of Enamellers and the British Society of Enamellers. Teaching and passing on the skills of this ancient craft on to others gives great pleasure. She has exhibited in many places such as Centrepiece in Birmingham, Torquil Gallery, Woodstock and Goldsmiths Hall as well as in Japan, America and Spain gaining awards in many.
Recently, Penny has started to experiment with high firing enamel on copper. The outcome of this work can be seen in the small enamelled bowls in this exhibition
