Cloisonné Enameling and Haiku Writing

October 13, 2019 – October 19, 2019

Harlan Butt

Cloisonné is drawing with wire and coloring with glass. It can be simple or complex. During this workshop students discover the cloisonné process using a slightly domed disk from base coat to finishing. You will work on copper with silver foil and fine silver. Participants will also use a special jig to create repetitive cloisons. 3D vessels will be available for use. For added inspiration and meditation, the class will write haiku poems. Basic metalsmithing/jewelry skills and some enameling experience are helpful, but not required. Beginners are welcome.


Harlan Butt has been working in metal and enamel for over 40 years. He is Emeritus Professor of Art at the University of North Texas, past president of the Enamelist Society and the Society of North American Goldsmiths, and a Fellow of the American Crafts Council.
