Jeanette Hannaby – Enamel Artist Exhibition
Forest of Dean
“an exhibition of vibrant, lustrous enamel artworks exploring nature & landscapes”
Date: Friday 6th April until Sunday 7th May 2018
Taurus Crafts are the hosts to an exciting new exhibition in their café area, featuring the work of local artist Jeanette Hannaby. Jeanette has been enamelling for the past six years and has found it a fulfilling and exciting medium to work with.
Jeanette finds inspiration from her natural surroundings and from her walks in the Forest of Dean throughout the seasons and taking note of how the trees and landscapes change. “I enjoy making enamels of places of interest that I have visited whether it is well known landmarks or an unusually shaped hill with an outcrop of trees in a remote place..” - Jeanette, Enamel Artist
Her recent body of work touches on the changing season and the main exploration of this is through the use of colour, from bright bold greens and yellow in the spring through to reds, browns, oranges and yellow in the Autumn. The translation of colour “can be achieved by enamelling, and the unpredictable nature of working with copper and vitreous enamel glass powder.” – Jeanette, Enamel Artist
To create added dimension within her artworks, she uses found objects such as leaves, seed heads and ferns which is a recurring feature in most of her work. “I always have my eyes open for different and interesting shaped leaves that I can use as stencils in my designs”
Jeanette also incorporates her passion for photography into her work and uses her camera to capture moments of inspiration that she can then use for an enamel picture. She has recently explored glass transfers from some of her photographs which she use as to complete a picture or to incorporate the transfer into a landscape.
The centre is open daily 10am until 5.30pm and is free to get in with a large free car park. Located just outside Lydney town on the A48.
