Painting With Glass: An Introduction To Enameling

May 24, 2020 – May 30, 2020

Abigail Heuss

During this workshop students will explore exciting ways to create imagery with transparent and opaque enamels on copper and silver. You will explore techniques such as stenciling, graphite application, use of decals, cloisonné, champlevé, and painting with watercolor enamel. Participants will learn both kiln and torch firing options. Whether you are an experienced metalsmith hoping to create lovely glass gems to enhance your work, or a newcomer to the medium, this course will be a fun overview of what enameling has to offer. Basic metalsmithing skills will be useful, but not necessary.


Abigail Heuss is an associate professor at Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Georgia where she teaches 3D Design and Metalsmithing courses. She holds an MFA in Metal Design from East Carolina University and a BFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. Her work has been shown in national and international exhibitions and been published in several books and magazines. Huess makes domestic and wearable objects with a sentimental focus on narrative.
