Maxwell Enamels

About Me

I find enjoyment working with a technical craft that is centuries old but is still unique in our modern world. The visual reward is a vibrancy of opaques and luminosity of transparent enamels that is commanding.

I have had a life long love of jewelry and glass. Originally I made stained glass windows and viewed them as architectural "jewelry". Later, after discovering enameling, I was thrilled to be able to combine glass with silver and high karat gold using the cloisonné process.

I continue to feel I am in the jewelry world and appreciate the craftsmanship and design that was used to create the early vehicle emblems.

My introduction to car badges was in 1990, a damaged 1936 Mercedes Benz emblem for a custom vehicle. This one-off car was purchased as a pile of rusted parts for $1,000,000. It was fascinating to watch the progress as it evolved into a show car. 

 

Over the years my portfolio has grown to include drivers, classic show cars and many one-off’s or limited production vehicles. 

 

I am committed to providing:

The highest quality of craftsmanship

Professionalism

Communication

Commitment to deadlines
