Janine Partington’s work combines the traditional craft of enamelling with fresh, clean, contemporary design to create framed panels, jewellery and sculpture.
Enamelling is the art of fusing glass on to metal. Janine creates intricate hand-cut stencils which are then laid on to copper. Her stencils are inspired by trees, flowers, seedheads and the landscape. After sifting powdered enamel over a stencil she fires each piece in a kiln.
Janine is based in Bristol, where she studied enamelling in adult education evening classes, and spends much of her time designing and creating new panels for her collections.
Janine is an elected member of The Devon Guild of Craftsmen and the British Society of Enamellers.
