Mel Howse


Glass artist Mel Howse has taken her experience of working with enamels on glass to working with vitreous enamelled steel at A.J.Wells. Using bespoke enamels produced at the factory and having the space to experiment, she has been making new and unique pieces of artwork.

Mel has created two architectural pieces of enamelled steel. The 2.2m tall steel columns entitled Equivalents are inspired by the 1935 Paul Nash painting Equivalents for the Megaliths.

Mel created a unique and intimate piece of art Fire & Water, an enamelled cast iron art bath and an enamelled steel font for St Leonard’s Church in Seaford, East Sussex.

In 2011 Mel created two large vitreous enamelled vessels for part of Christian Aid’s POVERTY OVER Cathedral exhibition. The touring exhibition aims to highlight some of the issues prioritised by Christian Aid in its work to eradicate poverty.
