I’m Melissa Keskinkilinc, a UK based, Enamellers Guild member artist, who spent my childhood by the sea in Turkey. Memories of that time are often reflected in my work with glass and enamel, which tends to merge with other passions; such as teaching. Using my skills as a primary and early years specialist to connect with most age groups during glass and enamel workshops and teach using hands on demonstrations, is something I’m lucky to get to do. My drive to push boundaries by exploring the limits of the material is one of the things that I love most about working with glass. Sharing this love as an instructor, and encouraging the next generation to craft, through the creation of jewellery, blown glass pieces and flame work crafted beads is my mission for Melissa’s Melting Pot.
One of my top creative goals this year is to continue working with students as a visiting artist; providing glass and enamel workshops within the school setting.
