Metal enameling has been in practice since antiquity in many areas of the world. There are several basic processes for ornamentation which developed many years ago. These old processes may be applied today, as previously, or in a contemporary manner. There are, also, new processes for developing form and ornamentation. It was the purpose of the writer to study, discover, and then develop through experimentation, some processes which were new in approach. Therefore, this thesis consists of a series of experimental enameling processes applied to forms which were cut and shaped from sixteen gauge sheet copper. Transparent enamels were used almost exclusively as a coating and ornamental surface finish for the copper forms. In a few instances, opaque enamels were desired and used for accent purposes.
