Anne Havel: In the Line of Fire–Torch-Fired Enameling

09/01/2016 - 09/04/2016


In the Line of Fire:

Torch-Fired Enamelling

September 1-4, 2016

Workshop Description: using a torch, we will cover various methods of line creation to create the imagery and feeling one is trying to convey. successive layers of liquids & sgraffito, transparents, opaques, graphite, acid-etching, underglaze lines, under/& over-firing, and more will be used to build and preserve drawings in the final piece. No matter the student’s skill level, there will be the opportunity to immerse oneself in new ideas and principles. Cold-connection and minimal soldering skill options for your piece(s) can be explored.

Some metalsmithing and enameling skills are necessary. Neither need be extensive though.
