The purpose of the report is to find out what happens to enamel fired as a plique-à-jour. Why this happens, and how this information can be used for the production of plique-àjour- work. The dissertation only deals with basic processes within the subject, and is meant as a low-threshold introduction to the essentials in working with plique-à-jour. Only surface tension of the enamels is used as the sole aid, and none of the techniques that use temporary backing will be explored. Such techniques will be a natural step forward, following this exploration. The method of acquiring this information or, rather, the knowledge is a Practice as Research (PaR) methodology, which is based on actions that are largely regarded as implicit knowledge, and through critical reflection and contextualization are formulated and conveyed as explicit knowledge. The results show that extensive knowledge about the firing of the enamels from start to end, the different stages and properties associated with them, as well as temperature control, are the most important factors for understanding what happens when making plique-à-jour. Understanding the process gives the opportunity to influence the outcome in a positive direction depending on the situation, in an otherwise very volatile field.
