Author Bio: Pat Johnson

Pat Johnson discovered the beautiful medium of melted coloured grains of enamel on copper as a young woman. The process was very quick and soon she was making and selling small enamelled pendants. During this time she developed her techniques to make virtually any kind of enamelled design. Pat spent several years experimenting to see if enamelling was as much an art form as painting. She challenged herself to work in diverse styles ranging from realistic images to abstract art, and received commissions to make murals on large scale steel panels. Pat then spent twenty years working in the premises of industrial enamelling firms and producing public murals. Throughout her career, Pat Johnson has taught enamelling on copper at West Dean College. The discoveries that have come out of these classes have contributed largely to her understanding of the behaviour of enamels and enamelling techniques.
