13 September - 17 October 2009. The Oxfordshire Museum hosts an exhibition focusing on the ancient art of enamelling. The process of enamelling involves smelting powdered glass onto precious and non-precious metals, which then forms a glassy lustre finish. Promoted by the British Society of Enamellers, the exhibition examines the skills behind this age-old craft, which was in widespread use by the Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Greeks, Celts, Russians and Chinese. Many of the items on show are for sale.
