ultraWAVE Art Metal Studio is a specialty metalsmithing workshop producing decorative vessels and panels that are realized in vitreous enamel (glass fired onto a metal substrate). The mission of the studio is to enhance the aesthetic and spiritual experiences of persons appreciative of both beauty and strength. All work is locally hand crafted in Yorktown, NY.
Vitreous enameled art metal is sequentially fired at 1500 deg F and requires many days of precise design and execution. Vitreous enamel imparts a beautiful marriage of color, glass, light and metal.
Champleve, a specialized vitreous enamel technique, balances the lustrous capacity of the metal reserve with the luminous wells of glass fired into cells excavated or etched from the metal. Dating back to ancient and medieval applications of the technique for heraldic and clerical uses and rejuvenated many times over the centuries in more aesthetically refined decorative styles, champleve is intimately explored by ultraWAVE Art Metal Studio in a newly energized context of decorative formality and conceptual engagement.
As well as offering you our classic designed vessels, we encourage you to reach out to us with any needs or ideas for a custom work or installation.
