Episode #5: Enamel and Escarole Episode #5: Enamel and Escarole

This is the Art for Life Podcast by Gallery’s Choice, and I am your host, Rose Jarecki. Gallery’s Choice’s Art for Life Podcast series. Meant to explore the creative side of life by sharing tips techniques, inspirations and recipes with the goal of living well.  Whether you are an artist, an artist wanna be, a regular Jane or Joe Doe, with some time to kill, I promise there is something in here for all of you. We will talk about our business and how to be a great career creative. We will get you started if you never, or you never knew you could. And we will share anything we discover on the topics of being healthy, happy and wise…

Have you ever marveled at the depth and color of enamel jewelry?  Or has your attention been caught from across the room by a piece of wall art, and when you move in to take a closer look, were you surprised to see the painting was actually done in glass?

This episode will explain a form of art near and dear to my heart – fired vitreous enamels

If you think playing with fire is your idea of fun, this episode is for you! 

 “The deepest and most interesting unsolved problem in solid state theory is probably the theory of the nature of glass and the glass transition.”

– Philip Warren Anderson
