Enameling: Layered Images

This workshop explores using multiple layers of enamels to evoke a mood or tell a story. We will explore the different effects of light on transparent and opaque enamels and the shimmering qualities of light reflecting off metal through fired glass. We will consider the visual and metaphorical use of layers and balancing image clarity with ambiguity in service of the concept and design in the piece you complete. 16-Adult
