Meet the artist!

Yvonne loves contemporary designs in beautiful colours.  From brilliant rainbow hues to the soft shimmer of copper, brass and silver, she believes that variety is the spice of life.  There’s always something just a little bit different to make them special!

 

Each piece is hand enameled by Yvonne.

 

“The process of enameling involves firing very finely ground glass (vitreous enamel) onto a copper or silver base at approximately 1500 degrees. That’s hot!”

Refreshments will be served! See you there!
