Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Just mention the Penland School of Crafts in any author's biography--and the quality is sure to be outstanding. North Carolina professor Darty pleases the eye, if only through the vast gallery of enamel art. The real issue--and one faced by previous authors--is how to best explain very complicated techniques. That is not her forte, quite frankly; the how-tos feature photographs that are too small and layouts that are way too crowded. But the visuals far outweigh the detriments, as do the dozen projects, ranging from stencil and sgraffito-gifted earrings to a fold-formed vessel; each features techniques, safety rules, what you need, and what you do. A great coffee-table wish book. Appended is the Brown & Sharpe (B&S) gauge for sheet metal, a select bibliography, and contributing artists. Barbara Jacobs

I just got a copy of this book, and am overwhelmed by how amazing it is. Starting with clear detailed explanations of all the fundamentals (including working with enamel colors and setting finished enamels), the book then presents an extensive discussions of a wide variety of enameling techniques, and finishes with 12 challenging projects. But just as importantly, the book is absolutely filled with beautiful color photos of contemporary enamel works by a wide range of artists.

For anyone interested in enameling, this is an ESSENTIAL addition to their library!

This beautiful book is the most comprehensive enameling book yet. A novice could follow the teachings in this book and end up knowing more than enamelists with experience. The Hot Tips and Historical portions are fabulous. I have not referred to any of my other enameling books since I got my hands on this masterpiece. Thank you Linda Darty!

I have three or four other enameling books. This book is the best by far. The things that make it great are the wonderful tips, clear descriptions, sharp photos and interesting projects. Everyone I show this book to goes out and buys a copy for themselves.

I had been enameling for several months when I came upon this book. It provided answers to my many questions. I enjoy the historical highlights and the fast facts helpful hints. I also love the projects provided which teach beginners and those more advanced the various techniques. This book has been a definite plus to my library.

I've owned this book since it was first published and learned much about the art from its pages. Last week I had the good fortune to take a week-long workshop with the author at the Revere Academy in San Francisco. We used the book as text and reference throughout a fantastic week of exploration. In person, Linda is every bit as informative and enthusiastic as her fine book would lead one to expect. For anyone who can't share the luck of those who have studied with her directly, this book is by far the most thorough, clearly written, beautifully illustrated enameling manual currently in print. If you want to learn The Art of Enameling, buy this book before any other!
