About The Artist
Tracy Mastro • Raymond, ME
Metal, Jewelry • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE
I live and work in the Sebago Lake region of Maine. Inspired by the beautiful, peaceful and sometimes eerie wooded landscape where I live. After receiving a BFA from the Maine College of Art I sold my silver jewelry through galleries across the US. Later I took a break from jewelry to pursue abstract painting in encaustic and acrylic. Combining my use of color from painting and my jewelry background, I’m now focused on enameling in both painting and jewelry forms.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
I start by fold-forming copper sheet and trimming the edges to shape my “canvas”. Building up multiple layers, I apply liquid and sifted enamel to the copper and kiln fire before the next layer is applied. Interspersed in these layers I include various other forms of enamel. The finished piece is chemically etched and hand polished to give the surface a dreamy matte finish.
