Carly Wright is a Studio Art Jewelry Designer with 35 years experience exhibiting in nationally juried shows. She has pursued a specific study of the Champlevé technique in enameling since 1980.
Rock, water, light…the materials and elements found in nature form the basis of Carly’s inspiration.
"The technique that I specialize in is Champlévé, (this is a French term meaning “raised fields”). Enameled objects date back to the early part of the first millennium and were found throughout the ancient world. In the champlevé technique, recessed areas are created for the enamel, either by construction, casting, etching, or engraving."
