Enamelling class

 Sifted opaque green enamel one side, waste enamel with transparent green over the top on the other. Due to the delicate nature of the pierced copper, each enamelled layer was under-fired to prevent warping, meaning that the surface looks a little bit like orange peel in places.
Waste enamel with opaque blue on top, and the same green as before on the other side but with accidental bubbles.
Chased copper with wet flux, oxide left untreated.

I really enjoyed my enamelling induction with Jane Short on Monday. These certainly aren't examples of technically good enamelling, but with practice I will hopefully be a little better at being more generous when sifting layers and kiln timings.
