Creative Mark-Making In Enamel

July 15, 2018 – July 21, 2018

Jessica Calderwood

This intensive workshop focuses on different ways to make marks and render in vitreous enamel. Starting with copper sheet metal, demonstrations include sgraffito, etching cream, underglaze pencils, ceramic oxides, overglazes/china paint, glass beads and ceramic decals. Students will create a series of experimental process samples to open their approach and to expand their visual language. Basic enameling experience preferred.


Jessica Calderwood’s enamel work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and internationally in curated and juried exhibitions. She has participated in artist residencies with the John Michael Kohler Arts/Industry Program and the Mesa Arts Center. Her work has also been published in the Metalsmith, American Craft and Niche magazines, the Ornament Magazine, the Lark 500 series, and the “Art of Enameling.” She is currently an associate professor of Art at Ball State University.
