Enameling is the process of fusing powdered glass to copper, steel or silver resulting in a glossy, colorful finish.  Students in this class will gain a clear understanding on how to work with glass on metal through the exploration of enameling techniques such asstenciling, sgraffito, cloisonné, and champlevé. We will work with both flat and formed pieces to create jewelry and sculptural objects. Previous metal work experience is beneficial, however the only prerequisite is fearlessness to experiment.
