Gillie researched Holbein's magnificent oil paintings of this famous king and designed her own interpretation in vitreous enamel on gold to incorporate a variety of enamelling techniques.

The king's sumptuous costume has been worked in gold wire, gold foil and gold powder as an underlay prior to enamel painting.  Pattern on the gold curtain and architectural detail in the background has been engraved and the three inch by five and half inch enamel on 18ct. gold plaque has been set in a precious metal frame made by Robin Kyte
