Courtney DiMare

My approach to enamel is intuitive and expressive. I embrace its fragile and fickle nature while trusting how strong it can be. I find the balance through multiple layers of copper and enamel. The textures on the surface become micro landscapes that one can investigate closely as it guides the eye through the piece. Unified under a blanket of white enamel, these landscapes are reminiscent of the preciousness of an untouched snowscape. Temporary and ever-changing.
