The Founder of the Foundation, “Woody” Carpenter, spent much of his life collecting enameled art from all over the world. When the Foundation was formed, he donated or loaned almost all the items to the Museum for public display.
The museum includes the largest diverse collection of enameled art in the world and is meant to excite and inspire those interested in this art form. Included are over 1,100 items. Some are unusual, rare pieces, but all are beautiful. A few are large, but most are small, so look closely – the level of artistry is often awe-inspiring.
