Workshop Description

Enameling: Color, Texture and Form

In this workshop, we will explore ways to use vitreous enamels in your work to create a rich, colorful and textured surface through the use of overfired enamels, layering opaques and transparents, sugarfiring and by incorporating elements such as reflective glass beads, seed beads and sand. I will demonstrate enameling on two and three dimensional surfaces and discuss solutions to setting enamel pieces. We will explore enameling as a textural element, along with texturing techniques for metal.

Please check back with us tomorrow as we preview more of our distinguished presenters.
