White Dove Vessel (a)
2012
copper, enamel, silver
3.5 x 3 x 3 inches
The White Dove Vessel is enameled with a feather pattern of the wing of a white dove. The outlines of the feather pattern are fine silver cloisonné wires separating transparent enamel over silver foil. Across the lid is a dove feather cut from silver & then fired with coats of enamel that is then etched to achieve a matte surface.

The image of the vessel in this online portfolio is an example of the White Dove Vessel series. Each piece is hand-made by the artist & has its own distinctive features.
