Enamelled copper sitting black greyhound (or silhouette), mounted in a wood-effect frame with watercolour background.
The dog is black on a background that’s green, going paler towards the top. The frame is 25cm by 30cm and a pale oak colour.
I made the dog by cutting a sitting greyhound shape out of sheet copper and enamelling it with black vitreous enamel. I also did the watercolour background.
The frame does not have a glass front. I removed it, partly to be able to see the enamel work properly, but also because during enamelling the dog sagged a little on the stand used to hold it, so it isn’t flat. I like the slightly 3D effect so I allow it to happen. Without the glass, the watercolour may fade, but the dog will not change.
