About Hengameh Alikashani

I love and enjoy the unpredictability and surprises that can occur through the process of enameling.

Enameling the art of fusing glass onto metal. Vitreous enamel powders are sifted onto the metal surface and the piece is fired in a very hot kiln. Many layers and firings are needed to achieve an interesting finished effect, which then shimmers and glows with permanent colors which will never fade with time.

Creating and mark making are my way to express the world around and within me. We all leave marks in this life and we all are connected by the paths we travel. Each handmade piece of object or jewelry is infused with marks, textures, colors in an unexpected way to create one-of-a-kind wearable art or structure.
