Maker's Details - Partington, Janine

Janine combines traditional enamelling with fresh contemporary designs.

Category: Enamelling
Janine’s work combines the traditional craft of enamelling with fresh, clean, contemporary design to create framed panels and jewellery. Enamelling is the art of fusing glass on to metal. It is durable, strong and colour-fast. Janine creates intricate hand-cut stencils which she then lays on to copper. Her stencils are inspired by trees, flowers, seedheads and landscape. After sifting the powdered enamel over the stencil she fires the piece at 800°C. This process is repeated many times until the work is finished. Whilst Janine reuses stencils, no two pieces are identical due to the nature of the process. Based in Bristol, Janine exhibits and sells work both regionally and nationally.
