Vitreous Forms

August 4, 2019 – August 10, 2019

Felicia Szorad

Together, enamel and hammer formed metal are a perfect pair. In this workshop students explore methods for shaping metal into dimensional forms using basic tools such as hammers, stakes, wood and pitch. You will create a variety of volumetric shapes and experiment with firing enamel onto them to visually enhance the original forms and expand their conceptual impact. Participants will utilize both kiln firing and torch firing techniques and explore combining transparent and opaque enamels over copper oxidation to create visual depth and color complexity. Open to all skill levels.
