The classic art of enameling is experiencing a well-deserved renaissance—and it’s stunningly captured in this lovingly curated survey. More than 300 international contemporary artists have contributed museum-worthy pieces, which range in scale from David C. Fredda’s “Green Slipper Brooch” and Harlan W. Butt’s “Maine Teapot” to large sculptures and public art.
