Young Enameller Award

Laura Ball decribes her designs

The designs for the “Young Enamellers Awards” were predominantly based on my interest in abandoned surfaces and textures. Importantly, within the panels I included a moving “half circle” to signify the changes in age groups. Included in the design is a Celtic type decorative cross, applied as a stamp onto the patterns. This was added in order to make a link to the work of Judith Harris, who is commemorated by these awards. She used Celtic motifs in her own enamels and I hope that she would have liked this style.
