June Schwarcz studied industrial design at the Pratt Institute in New York and worked as a packaging designer for cosmetics and toy companies. She learned to enamel in the 1950s, experimenting with a wide variety of techniques. The artist’s inspirations range from patterns in rock formations to contemporary Japanese art, and she is especially interested in textile design and the manipulation of fabric. She uses thin copper foil to form delicate vessels with folded, creased, and tucked walls.
