Cloisonné Enameling

The vivid color and unique beauty of enameling has been prized for centuries. Cloisonné, with fine lines of precious metal delineating patterns and images, is appreciated around the world. In this class you will learn to create a suitable design, bend and apply the cloisonné wires, apply multiple layers of enamel and fuse them in the kiln, and grind and flash-fire the finished enamel, thereby creating a gemlike image of lasting beauty. With diligence our goal is to end with a completed piece ready for setting.  This is a beginner level class, no experience necessary however basic enameling helpful.
