    Artist Info
    Working alone in the basement of his home in Connecticut, this artist began experimenting with powdered glass fused to small copper plates. His playful approach resulted in early designs applied to small glass enamel plates.

    As the years passed, the artist made a dramatic change away from copper enameled plates and trays and turned instead to the creation of simple little copper enameled flowers. Later designs were extended to larger tabletop flowers, with a growing choice of flowers, bonsai and maple trees, birds and butterflies.

    Today, the artisans continue to use many of the techniques developed from the early days of the company, combining modern technology and old world craftsmanship.
