Enamelled copper blue dolphin wall hanging or wall art.  It is mounted in a wood-effect frame with watercolour background.  I cut the dolphin shape out of sheet copper, then enamelled it in blue/turquoise transparent vitreous enamel.  The dolphin looked a bit boring so I did an extra firing with an enamel mix.  This gave mostly blue and white dots.  I also painted the watercolour background, which helps the dolphin to stand out.  The watercolour is a graduated light blue colour.

The frame is 25cm by 30cm and a pale oak colour.  There is no glass in the frame because the dolphin is not completely flat (and doesn’t need glass protection).  In the kiln, copper can sag a little on the stand, so my enamelled pieces are not flat.  The sagging gives a slightly 3D effect which I like.  One photo tries to show the curve in the enamelled copper of the blue dolphin wall hanging.
