About The Enamel Industry
The enamel industry is largely unknown to artists as a means to produce exterior installations that are long lasting, weather- and graffiti-impervious. The medium is suited to one-of-a kind creative functional objects for interior and exterior furnishings, architectural elements, garden and building design. Industrial work is usually made with steel or cast iron.
