Foldformed, enamelled leaves

During this class I began to experiment with foldforming copper after a classmate brought in the classic book by Charles Lewton-Brain.   I found that I really enjoyed the process of creating leaves with varying patterns from copper sheet.  I then spent a fair amount of time practicing my enamelling skills by applying the enamels to the foldformed leaves.

You can see the progression here from just copper to covered with enamel.  I have continued to work with these two techniques as I love the variety of textures and colors that can be achieved.
