Enamelled copper blackbird silhouette wall hanging, mounted in a wood-effect frame with watercolour background.  The blackbird is sitting on a branch.  I cut the blackbird out of sheet copper, then enamelled it in black vitreous enamel.  I also painted the watercolour background, which helps to blackbird stand out.  The watercolour is a graduated pinky, orangey colour, a bit like a sunset.

The frame is 25cm by 30cm and a pale oak colour.  There is no glass in the frame because the blackbird 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.

I have another bird silhouette if it’s in stock – Framed enamelled swallow
