Contemporary Enamel

Vitreous enamel offers endless possibilities for adding color, texture, pattern, imagery, and text to metal objects and jewelry. This workshop will cover techniques ranging from sifting to champlevé, including liquid enamels, decals, stencils, cloisonné, enameling on 3-D forms, and application to both copper and steel. We’ll explore how to incorporate enamel into your work—including setting and fastening techniques—as well as design and concept development. With an emphasis on contemporary and experimental approaches, this workshop will allow students to begin a studio practice in enamel or to expand their existing practice. All levels. Upper metals studio.
