Plique a Jour In 3D: Enameling Without a Net

June 2, 2019 – June 8, 2019

Amy Lyons

This workshop focuses on creating 3D plique a jour objects. Students will fabricate a framework from fine silver wire and then suspend enamel in the openings. The emphasis is on students developing a personal aesthetic while learning to design expressively within the technical demands of this exciting technique. Demonstrations include fabrication of the framework, application of the enamel, and methods for a successful firing and finishing the work. Also presented are tips and tricks to demystify this art. Students will complete a bowl, cup, or 3D pendant. Soldering experience is needed for this class.
