    metal arts globally.

    for ways to add additional color and depth to their work, will
    benefit from the 22+ years of information Glass on Metal has provided
    the enameling community.  The partnership will provide these artisans

    articles from past and current issues of Glass on Metal, written by
    knowledgeable experts in the field.  Many national and

    applications for the material," said Thomas Frechette, Glass on Metal
    editor.  "This joint venture with The Ganoksin Project will generate
    even greater interest in fusing glass to metal, and will provide a
    solid knowledge base to those desiring to explore the medium.  It
    will be a pleasure to work with Dr. Aspler on providing the jewelry
    and metals community information on this ancient form of

    Dr. Aspler (Hanuman) of Ganoksin said: "Enameling has a rich
    historical tradition and has been part of every culture's art.  By
    taking advantage of Ganoksin's vast archival index, now anyone can
    locate and learn about the unique properties of enamel. We offer
    these articles from Glass on Metal free to the public, in the spirit
    of our mission to unite the knowledge, artistry and talent of the
    world's jewelers."
