Alexandra has decorated the surface of this copper bowl with detailed designs of dragonflies using the technique of plique-à-jour enamel. She chooses subjects that will highlight the technique as well as her personal experimentation. In contrast to the traditional technique where holes are pieced in the metal surface, Alexandra places metal wires directly on the copper, as per the cloisonné technique, and creates light and ethereal colours with enamel.
