Enameling II - Christiana Taglepietra
This class covers techniques beyond the basics. It is mainly dedicated to Cloisonne and Champleve- two quite labor intensive procedures. If requested other techniques such as Basse Taille, Mosaic, Sgraffito, 3-D and Graphite maybe explored. Cloisonne will be done with transparent enamels on copper which has been overlaid with Fine Silver Foil. This will be an opportunity to expand the knowledge of transparent enamels, their individual properties and best use. For the Champleve technique we deep-etch heavy gauge copper and fill the cavities with opaque enamels. Again, a deeper knowledge of opaque enamels and design challenges will be addressed. The lab fee covers everything needed to complete 5 projects-additional materials may be purchased. Please pay the lab fee and eventual purchases either in cash or by check.
