Enamel or vitreous enamel is really a thin layer of glass fused by heat on to the surface of a metal. Enamel is also used by artists and in jewellery, famously in Russia’s Fabergé eggs. We make enamel by melting tiny coloured glass particles on to red-hot metal in 800 degrees C furnaces. As it cools it fuses to give glass-coated metal. It all started 3500 years ago in Cyprus. Since 1500 BC enamelling has provided a wonderful, durable, attractive and reliable material.
Vitreous enamel is very fine glass particles fused onto copper at 800 degrees celsius. Although this enamel is strong, care must be taken to ensure that the edges of the piece do not chip. Keep the piece in the calico bag provided in a dry, clean, dust free environment. Dropping the piece or being excessively rough with it can lead to small chips and cracks in the surface. Just remember… its glass!
