Hand-crafted home decorations are created by using a century-old method of fusing finely powdered glass enamel to copper. Crafted in Connecticut for more than 65 years, the collection includes wall sculptures, and tabletop pieces using a variety of materials such as glass enamels, copper, brass, bronze, steel and stainless steel. The process consists of sifting various colors of French and US-made enamels over carefully formed copper bases. The two are fused in 1600F degree ovens to become one. As the glass melts it becomes smooth and translucent and transforms into brilliant colors that will never fade.
The studio had it's start in 1952 and today combines old-world craftsmanship with modern technology to create collections of birds, marine life, flowers, butterflies, dragonflies, and botanical sculptures.
