Jewels of the Sea

  • Exhibition: Underwater flora and fauna - 2024
  • Description of your entry: A triptych depicting an under water scene with silver cloisonné wire and wet packed primarily with Taylor’s Transparent and Opague enamels and WG Lead free transparent enamels.

    I got my inspiration for this piece from a watercolour painting that was created by my Great Grandfather some 50 years ago, he used to illustrate children’s books. It isn’t clear whether this particular painting was used in a children’s book or whether it was just one of his many paintings but I decided to take elements from it and create my own under water scene.
