One of my newest pieces.

This is my first time trying copper champleve (saw & solder), sorry I didn’t take any process photos. I will do it with the next one. This is a California quail, and they are a local favorite of mine. I’ve long wanted to enamel one, and it’s taken me a long time to decide which techniques would be best suited to their coloring and personalities. This has a push-pin setting on the back.
