Fred Uhl Ball (1945-1985) American Artist
In the early 1970's Fred Ball began experimenting with placing torch-fired enamels on thin copper foil panels like a collage. Ball also explored the use of bronze as a surface by exposing white enamel at varying temperatures to create varied hues of color on the bronze.[3] These early experiments, described as unorthodox, also had him exploring fire scale and liquid enamels, which are quite common in enameling today.[1] In 1972 he published his first book, "Experimental Techniques in Enameling.
