Maker's Quote

No two pieces that I make are exactly the same, I love the spontaneity that comes from experimenting with the enamel, it's deliberately different every time as in nature and with the weather – similar but different. Working from the drawings and paintings of nature and landscape, the pieces develop as they are being made. I don't work to detailed technical drawings for each design. The bowls and vessels grow from the metal in a very organic way, when it feels right it's done.

Emma Louise Wilson Silversmith, Jeweller & Enameler

The Process

Emma’s process begins at her silversmithing bench, cutting disks from flat sheets of responsibly sourced fine silver. These disks are annealed, sunk, warmed again, then hand raised using a mallet, providing the silver with a gentle finish. This round is repeated up to eleven times in order to form a shape where the naked bowl sits naturally in the palm. The enamelled silver bowl then rests atop her kiln, allowing moisture to evaporate, after which the piece is fired at 800*c to facilitate the fusion of glass and metal. Once cooled to a tactile temperature, silver exterior is scoured to provide a velvet finish allowing exterior to be smooth to the touch, yet in contrast with the vibrant sheen of the enamelled interior.
