Pauline Higgins is an American artist who enamels copper and steel. Enameling is one of the oldest arts in the history of man. It’s an exacting art which demands careful attention to such details as cleaning, application and firing. The process applies multiple layers of thin coats of glass to the metal. Each layer is fired at high temperatures, melting and fusing it to the metal.
Higgins graduated from Carson Newman College. She has a Master of Science from the University of Tennessee. She also studied colored pencil painting with Joan Folsum, acrylic paintings with James Warrick Jones, and portrait painting with Kristina L. Havers. She attended the John Campbell Folk School studying Copper Enameling.
