Upcoming Jewelry Classes
Instructor: Judy Stone
In this workshop we will start by drawing lines and negative space using the sgrafitto (scratch-through) technique on an airbrushed white enamel surface which is applied as a liquid and then fired. The lines will serve as a sort of “reverse cloisonné” guiding our color applications. The white background will act as our canvas and the revealing of the copper through transparent enamels will be our key to the three-dimensional nature of the material. We may be firing up to 10 layers on any given piece as we explore what happens as each layer is morphed by heat and the layers that are underneath change. This will also be an exercise in evaluating dark and light on a color field; the interplay of enamels from various manufacturers; the mixing of transparent, opaque and opalescent; and the influence of particle size on layering. In addition we will be taking away partial layers through abrasion and examining various finishing techniques and how they influence the optics of what has been created.
