Happy Holi 01 – A Celebration of the Indian Festival of Colours!
Happy Holi 01 | Festival of Colours Copper Wall Art is just an explosion of bright colours.
This design started out as an experiment over the week-end of 27 March. I decided to have a play session with my enamelling kiln, bits of copper, colourful enamel and stencils.
It looked beautiful so I decided to make a few more tiles in this style. 29th March 2021 was also Holi, the Indian festival of colours. So it made perfect sense to make a few more colourful enamelled tiles and have my own festival of colour.
I am really having a lot of fun with enamel. My enamelling kiln has added a whole new dimension to my work.
This picture on copper has been mounted on a piece of recycled pallet wood by my husband Dave.
HAPPY HOLI 01 | Festival of Colours Copper Wall Art is 14 x 14 cm square. The tile is 10 cm x 10 cm.
This wall mountable picture has a string at the back. If you prefer you can display it using a small plate holder or stand. This would work well for displaying on the mantelpiece or window-sill.
The pallet wood mount has been made using an ancient Japanese method of preserving wood known as Shou Sugi Ban. The wood is burnt using a blow torch. I dyed it using a black water based dye because I think the black background makes the colours really stand out.
Dave works with wood, wire and rocks. Some of his work is listed in my online shop here.
