"Gillie Hoyte Byrom is a virtuoso of painting in enamel and a teacher of exemplary clarity. This manual is a model of its kind, compelling and inspirational in its presentation of a lifetime’s experience. It will be required reading both for the practical student and for anyone who wants to understand the mystery of this fascinating art."
Richard Edgcumbe, V&A Museum
"The Practice of Painting in Enamel" by Gillie Hoyte Byrom is a very comprehensive book wherein the author explains that technique down to the smallest detail and provides us with plenty of useful tips. It is a unique treatise on painting enamel and I hope those enamellers who read it will revive that ancient and wonderful art form.
Carmen Lombardi, Brazil
"This book, so much more than an austere manual, is as inspirational as it is informative and instructive."
Erika Speel
"This is a wisely wonderful, practical and inspirational manual. In so painstakingly recording those enamelling processes that become instinctive to an expert, Gillie Hoyte Byrom demystifies her arcane and complex skill, making it appear almost simple. As we follow her analysis of each stage of production, our admiration grows for her desire to share her expertise for the technical benefit not just of practising enamellers, but also of curators, collectors and enthusiasts of this exquisite art."
