Artist Profile: Penny Gildea - Enamels and jewellery
Penny Gildea trained at the School of Jewellery as a mature student specialising in engraving and diamond mounting.
She now works in Stratford upon Avon as an enameller making jewellery, small objects, whistles and miniature landscape pictures.
The techniques that she uses are traditional ones. After the metal work has been completed and the enamel prepared, the two materials - glass and metal - are fused in a kiln at high temperature. It is the combination of transparent glass and textured metal that give her work excitement and subtlety.
Her work has been exhibited internationally and throughout
