Description This unusual beautiful transparent enamel metal plaque was made by the one of the best enamelist in America who worked in several different metals all his work was done by hand and each piece is unique.

Edward Winter studied in Vienna, Austria and went on to teach at the prestigious Cleveland Institute of Art (1935-1937) and the Old White Art Colony in West Virginia.

Winter created abstract compositions with occasional botanical or biomorphic elements. He employed copper, steel, silver, or aluminum as his substrate and sometimes used foil inlays in addition to the enamel colors. The works ranged from household tableware to large wall plaques. In the 1950s, Thelma started working in enamel as well, and the pair worked both independently and collaboratively on various projects. They created a number of sizable enamel murals, including eleven commissioned by churches.
Winter wrote Enamel Art on Metals (1958), Enameling for Beginners (1962), and Enamel Painting Techniques (1970), as well as many articles on his medium. The first of these was praised as an important book from a master of the craft when it first appeared.
During World War II, while serving as a technical sergeant, Edward got a special commission from the U.S. Army to make educational posters.
In the 1960s, Winter offered a kit for making enameled aluminum jewelry.
His work is in the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Butler Museum of Art, and other institutions
