Kathleen Wilcox

I have been working with the medium of vitreous enamel since 1976, either creating enamel art pieces or teaching enameling. Enamel is a powdered glass that is fused to metal. I apply and fire my enamel work in many separate layers in a 1500 kiln. I approach the many enamel techniques through methods of drawing, painting, printing and collage. My favorite subject matter is related to plant and animal forms in nature. I think of my work as a celebration or homage to nature’s gifts. My enamels are assemblage wall pieces or jewelry.

When I teach enameling I do a tremendous amount of research and example enamel samples. I enjoy the process of designing, preparing a workshop and then sharing to others. Teaching has also helped me to improve my own enameling skills.

  1. Kathy Wilcox's sublime detail, layering, finesse, and authenticity-true to the spirit of her lifelong home of Florida, and her attention to the fine, exquisite rendering of all her pieces, is just phenominal. She is a very talented artist/instructor, who shares her love of the fusing techniques and her love of her subjects. You can just feel the beauty, the playfulness, and the love she instills

  2. I had the good fortune to take a workshop given by Kathy at the Enamelist Society conference. She is a fantastic instructor and artist. She was super prepared with detailed handouts and inspiring samples and everyone had a fulfilling and valuable week learning from her. She is super nice, super creative and super available with suggestions and solutions to technical and artistic considerations.
