Dimensional Enameling – Anne Havel 4/9 – 4/12
Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 9:00 am to Friday, April 12, 2019 - 4:30 pm EDT$585.00 – $688.00
There are many pieces that can be enameled, after soldering, if a torch is used rather than a kiln. Equal weight will be given to planning, forming/creating the piece in metal, and then enameling. Soldering skills will allow for more flexibility in design, and is highly recommended, but not necessary.
- ways of containing the heat so the enamels will flow and preserve the soldered seams
- Preparation of metal, including forming, folding, soldering
- use of liquid, powdered, and other enamels to determine which is best suited for each application
- different approaches to firing based on the size and shape of the piece
- different ways of seeing/thinking/planning for more unusual setting/mounting options
- planning each step before enameling begins
If time and desire permits:
- exploration of enamel techniques, including: sgraffito, graphite, acid-etching, painting, sugar-firing, etc.
- enable students of enameling to be able to continue to torch-fire at home after the class.
- Present new information about torch-firing, soldering, and/or enameling techniques that they may not have in their skill sets.
- explain/demo how to solder or form their pieces that will survive torch-firing
- new ways to think about creative settings for pieces
- Inspire more people to pursue the art of enameling, generate enthusiasm, and increase the dialogue around the art-form, even if they choose to use their skills with a kiln.
- Help each student with their vision, should they have one.
- Learn from each other. Everyone has something to teach.
