Learn methods to add subtlety, complexity and a gestural feel to your cloisonné designs. In addition to the basics of wire bending and wet packing, we will cover an assortment of techniques for incorporating texture, pattern, and markings into the cloisonné. Texturing base metal, using textured foils, inlaying enamels, using underglaze and diamond burs for mark making, using opaque enamels as accents, using foils to create a sense of depth, creating a smooth gradient of color, and more. Playfulness and experimentation will be encouraged as students use the techniques to create a cloisonné piece. Several different approaches to finishing cloisonné will be covered. Students will complete a cloisonné enamel project.
Beginners will gain an introduction to an exciting medium, and more experienced students will deepen their understanding.
