ON THE TRIVET.... insights and information

 

The Science of measuring time and the art of Making timepieces!

Gabor Forgo

Changing the Face of Time

 

Ever since craftsmen have created clocks, enamel has been used as a decorative art form. Between the 17th and 20th century, both enameling and engraving were techniques employed by artists.  The brilliance of colors, hardness of the surface, and the variety of patterns were highly appreciated by the discerning buyer.  

Over several hundred years, many beautiful pieces have been collected and exhibited in public and private collections in Switzerland ( Musée international d’horlogerie, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Musée Vacheron Constantin, Genéve, Patek Philippe Museum, Genéve,Collection Ulysse Nardin, Le Locle, etc.)

 

Clocks are magical devices with precise small parts of different shapes and functions. Separately they are not significant, but together they are an orchestra of sound and movement and a whole lot of art and craft.

 

My approach to enameling clocks is a special one. They should be attractive as well as functional.  As a lifelong enameller, I  have never ceased to be fascinated by the intensity and brilliance of colors; the choice of techniques; and the fun of shaping metal into any form I choose.  I began with an  idea of making a desk top clock with the dimensions of 10x10x25cm. After drawing the design on paper, I realized I was facing a few obstacles.  The first, being the limited space inside my kiln. The second was my lack of advanced metal-smith experience and jeweler techniques. I considered constructing several small parts combined into a larger body. This construction could consist of metal only ( copper or silver  to be enameled ) or metal together combined with wood.

               Wood housing before enamel side plates are mounted

                     Construction with wooden ground plate

The third obstacle was how to hold all the parts together. Soldering was not an option due to the size of the kiln, but the use of screws, nails, rivets and chemical bonding (glue) seemed the right choice.  I made a wooden ground plate and support for the clock face so that I could fasten the enamel parts. Next, I constructed a complete wooden housing for the clock with appropriate opening for adjustment.

Next, was choosing the type of mechanism.  The ancient clocks were all mechanical, of course. Not being a professional watchmaker this was not an option. I chose a quartz movement that is small, precise, non- expensive, available and requires only a 1.5 v battery.

 

These are the steps I used to approach the making of a clock.

1. Design on paper (sketch)

2. Defining dimensions (height, width, length)

3. Sawing out the wooden parts for the housing (6-10mm thickness)

4. Sawing out the copper parts using 18 gauge (1mm) copper sheet

5. Annealing and shaping the copper if necessary for the form

6. Building the wooden house using screws and bolts and hinges, painting the wooden parts

7. Drilling all necessary holes for fixing the metal parts

8. Sawing out the copper forms if any

9. Enameling and finishing the copper parts

10. joining the enameled copper parts to the housing

11. Inserting the clock and the battery and adjusting the clock

Looking at the Joy Clock, enameling of the upper “serpentine” parts was a challenge. As I applied the colors I used a laboratory support to hold the piece in any desired position. The enamel was applied by wet packing. Once the enamel dried, I selected another position with the lab support and wet packed another color. This is a very time consuming step.  The next task to be solved is the support of the piece in the kiln. I cut out and formed appropriate supporting elements from stainless steel.

 

The Clock Medium Complication (2012)

      The Top is made from one piece of copper with a rod thru it-

                             Two Painted Clocks

Here I have used cloisonné technique with mat and shiny finish.

Of course, a formidable polishing job!!

            Sgraffito Clock with integrated women's wristwatch parts

                                            and

                Skeleton Type Clock (2014) with integrated watch gears

This Fairytale Castle Clock (2013) is a magical combination of Murano glass beads and enamel.

The Penny Clock (2013) was adorned with old coins featuring Kings and Presidents. The area for the placement of the coins is sawed out of the metal and the coin is glued in.

The intricate design on the Triangle Clock (2013) was cut with a Jewelers saw and then attached over a brass plate making this work a time consuming business.

Princess Clock (2014) with hand sawed face and side plate - This piece is reminiscent of a medieval clock.

                                 Rear side with hinge

The most difficult and most interesting part of the clock is the face. I have used divisions or ciphers ( numbers  ) for the hours. The accuracy of the time indication ( i.e. whether the hands of the clock show the right cipher at the right time ) depends on the exact positioning of the divisions or numbers. Therefore, the divisions/ciphers have to be accurately drawn on paper. The drawing is then transferred using wax transfer paper onto the pre-enameled face. The transfer is usually carried out as the last step after the face has been enameled and fired several times. The white wax traces are used as a guide for hand painting the ciphers or divisions under a magnifying glass.

 

The Polygon Clock (2014) hinged box with hand sawed face and four side plates.

Wheel of Time Clock (2014) hinged box with circular postern on the sides and on rear side.

Filigree Clock (2014) with hand sawed decoration on all four sides.

Something else to consider is the stability of the door for changing the battery as it is opened and closed. Often I have used a small metal chain to hold the door.

I pushed my ideas further by using a small quartz clock and a piece of enamel set in an old pocket watch.

 The Pandora Clock is an all metal structure. (2013)

                                             

The Patience Clock (2014) in Sgraffito technique as a wall panel. The piece has been accepted and shown for the 48th Intl. Exhibition of the Japan Enameling Artist Association in the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum in July 2014.

The text is "Patience" in Sanskrit, English, Japanese, German & Thai

The Golden Clock (2013) uses a 3 dimensional optical illusion pattern. To create the hand painted pattern, the corner points had to be exactly marked by wax transfer.

My fantastic journey through the world of clock making is far from over. There are still many more exciting possibilities to be designed.

SALT CELLARS

GOLD and SILVER THRONE

Russian gilt silver cloisonne enamel salt [cellar] throne and spoon, 1908-1926, scroll and floral overall enamel decoration, gilt interior, hook on side, mark for Г.П with matching salt spoon. Both with marks for Kokoshnik, 1908-1926, .875 fine.

Salt began to be produced in Russia in 1515 and was mostly controlled by the Stroganoff family through the 19th century. While the working classes were not familiar with salt, it was a highly valued commodity used by the wealthy class especially for entertaining guests. For the wealthy, salt not only flavored food--it was a status symbol and impressed guests in much the same way as a big house or castle and fancy porcelain services would impress. Dinners might have up to 10 courses, and with each course a new porcelain service was set out. Salt cellars were an enhancement to the porcelain services. Many different kinds of salt cellars were made. They ranged from basic, unadorned, silver salts to enameled, gem-encrusted, solid gold salts, and everything in between.

KAMAL KUMAR Meenakar

INDIA

I was born in 1974 in Jaipur (Rajasthan) India. I am the 9th generation of family enamellers, who learned the art from artisans of Iran around 450 years ago, spreading enamel art through various parts of India.

My forefathers pictured in Jaipur Enamels publication - 1886

My family made many beautiful pieces for the Royal family of Jaipur as well as many other royal families.

My grandfather, Shri Kawal Singh ji (center) with his father and uncles 1895.

My late father, late Shri Munna Lal Meenakar received a national award in 1975 from President of India, late Shri Fakru Dion Ali Ahamud, at New Delhi.

 

Who are Meenakars?

Artisans in India start at a very early age. “Meenakar” means Enameller” and “Meenakari” means enameling.

 

I began my enameling lessons from my father at the age 8 years old, along with my academic studies. From morning until noon I studied in school, then went to my Father’s studio to learn engraving and champlevé from 3:00 pm to 7:30 pm.

By 1990, at the age of sixteen, I left my academic studies and continued under the tutelage of my father in his studio that has continued since my forefather’s time.  A year later, I moved into my own workshop, working alone creating objects in gold like boxes, pens and various styles of jewelry. Enameling is the main business of my family providing jewelry for stores as well as our own collection.

 

                                                RING

                                  Working a pattern

                                                 3" cuff gold

                                          Pendant- gold & diamonds

                                       RING & EARRINGS

 I worked exclusively in gold until 2008, until one day a famous foreign designer walked in and asked me to create an enamel piece in silver. It was a challenge for me, as it was my first time working with silver. It came out beautifully and she was very pleased. After that I made many pieces in silver.

                                        9" scroll

                       Gold and Silver Box with diamonds

In 2011, I entered an exhibition of Indian handicrafts in enamel art and I made a 7.6 inches long gold vessel called BADLA for this competition. It took fifteen months to complete. I won the competition and received the National Award by the President of India on July 1st, 2014.

 

In my spare time, I enjoy flying kites, listening to old classic songs and riding my bike.

      ART JEWELRY MAGAZINE

FROM THE EDITOR: CALL FOR ENTRIES

We're looking for a few great jewelry pieces!

The Art Jewelry staff is hard at work getting three galleries of work together for our next additions to the Art Jewelry Techniques app -- we want to show beginner jewelry makers what results are possible with masterful and creative application of some basic jewelry-making skills. Right now, we're looking at work that highlights the following techniques:

  • Texturing (This can be anything from hammered texture to scribed texture, to roll-printing. As long as your metal surface is rich and dimensional!)

  • Dapping and Swaging

  • Sawing and Piercing

Obviously, these are huge fields -- so there's lots of room for artists who experiment with new ways to produce the results they desire. We're going to narrow the field down to nine select jewelry pieces for each gallery.

Submit your work: Three categories, three editors!

Submit your Texturing images to Annie Pennington

Submit your Dapping/Swaging images to Theresa Abelew

Submit your Sawing/Piercing images to Hazel Wheaton

Editor, Art Jewelry

FOR THOSE OF YOU unfamiliar with this technique of Enamel Art

 

PLEASE allow me to re-introduce Master Artist

MAURICETTE PINOTEAU

LIMOGES, FRANCE 

 

 

 

 

Mauricette Pinoteau is an enamelist living in Limoges. She specializes in  relief  technique, she learned this technique at the very famous " Atelier Camille Fauré "in Limoges ,during the 70's .
Mauricette is one of the only two living enamelists  that  studied  with  the  Masters  the secret  of  the  relief  technique.
Today she masters this almost magical style of enameling wich seems to defy the logic of enamelling.
She works and sells her work in her own gallery in the same town of Limoges.

 

Mauricette has provided us with a file to watch how this technique is done.

     CHRIS HIERHOLZER

TORCH FIRING DVD

A dvd using a rare and beautifull technique that chris hierholzer has developed using sgrafitto with fine gold foil using a torch to fire instead of a kiln. the enamel is wet packed. it has lots of intructional and easy to read text and limited audio with optional torch set ups at the end.

 Torch firing is a perfect way to fire enamels for those with limited space and can't afford the high cost of a kiln.

A layer of 18k gold alloy with a rich yellow color or 22k gold alloy with a bright yellow color is bonded with sterling silver to form two distinct surfaces. The 18k gold layer is similar to that of most gold-filled products, while the 22k is two to three times thicker than gold-filled, giving it more workability. Surface treatments, such as engraving, scraping, folding, and twisting, can be used to accent the two surfaces.
