  • tools, supplies, safe practices
  • sifted enamel application methods 
  • application and firing of counter enamel and base coats

  • to get thorough answers to their questions from Barbara
  • to have Barbara review the specific information covered during Session 1 demonstrations.

The goal for this session is for participants to solidify their understanding and confidence with this enameling technique so they can continue using the processes learned on their own.

Barbara Minor works from her studio in Louisiana where she utilizes the ancient technique of vitreous enameling to create her innovative enameled beads, distinctive enameled jewelry and unique enameled vessels. She began enameling during graduate school and continued developing her knowledge by exploring enamel processes while teaching a SUNY Geneseo. Barbara concentrates on researching, perfecting and documenting experimental or innovative enamel processes utilized in her skillfully crafted jewelry and objects.
