Enameling--the art of fusing glass to metal through a high-temperature firing process--gained widespread popularity in the United States in the second half of the twentieth century. With origins in long-standing cultural traditions, enameling rose to prominence as a highly respected form of artistic activity and evolved from its traditional decorative foundations into a field of independent artistic interest. Today, artists continue to explore enameling in a variety of forms and formats, finding new meaning and expressive potential in the vibrant color and layered depth of this time-honored medium.

Written by two of the leading experts on the history of enameling in America, Little Dreams in Glass and Metal chronicles the history and dynamic development of enameling in the United States in the late twentieth century and explores the lives and contributions of ninety of the field's most significant artists.
