Immortal Art

An ancient  art of  fire enamel, if described in simple way, is a mass of glass put on metal and then fired numerous times at a very hot temperature. This truly elite, rare technique provides a unique combination of the precious jewelry materials usage with a freedom of oil painting. Each work is so unique that can not be repeated even by the author. fire enamel pieces are practically immortal - some of them, found at archaeological sites of ancient Egypt, haven't lost their brightness and are  untouched by time. In modern days, only very few artists had master this truly elite technique.
