Enameling, the fusing of finely ground glass to metal, is an ancient art dating to the Bronze Age.  Requiring precise firing at temperatures generally between 1400 and 1650 degrees, the process renders permanent the vibrant transparent, opalescent, and opaque colors of glass frit.  It is a medium placed firmly in the zone where art and craft merge and is used in jewelry making and the decorative arts. In this 6 week class, students will explore basic principles and survey essential techniques such as cloisonné, photo transfer, stenciling, sgrafitto.
