Velvet da Vinci Gallery in San Francisco presents “The Enamel Show”, an exhibition featuring work from the recently published Lark Jewelry Book 500 Enameled Objects.

The ancient technique of fusing powdered glass to metal was seen this spring at the hugely popular exhibition Artistic Luxury: Fabergé, Tiffany, Lalique at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. That exhibition included the gold Imperial Easter eggs produced by Fabergéfor the Russian royal family, some of the finest examples of enameled metal ever created. But this exacting technique did not end 100 years ago with Fabergé. The artists featured in “The Enamel Show” at Velvet da Vinci have produced some of the most spectacular pieces featured in the 2009 Lark Book 500 Enameled Objects, juried by Sarah Perkins. The exhibition will include both wearable jewelry and small sculptural objects. Sixty-five international artists will be featured in the exhibition.
