The article is devoted to the study of the application of calligraphy in enamel art. This publication is the first attempt in art history to analyze the use of inscriptions directly in enamel. The publication sheds light on the relations to the art of calligraphy in different countries. Samples from Ukrainian enamel art are analyzed on specific examples. The publication provides the author's own practical experience regarding all technologies of execution which can be applied in hot enamel at the image of calligraphic elements. Step-by-step instructions for using the technique will be useful for enamellers to implement their own ideas. The scope of calligraphy in enamel art, in particular in jewellery, easel works, monumental art is also outlined in the work. It is emphasized that this direction is quite promising for outdoor use (exterior). Moreover, it is due to the fact, that the anti-corrosion properties of enamel in combination with three-dimensionality, polychromy and durability allow to use it as advertising as an artistic dominant of the street or city. The development of calligraphy in enamel art is becoming increasingly popular, the active use of which requires attention and further study. © 2022 Universitatea "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" din Iasi.
