Enameling on Steel Workshop

  • 645 Colfax Avenue Bellevue, KY, 41073 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Hosted at the Carpenter Enamel Foundation in Belleview KY.

This 4-day workshop is an overview of enameling on steel, specifically the use of liquid form enamel on steel. This class provides the opportunity to many who already use steel in their work, both in jewelry and small-scale sculpture, to explore the unique surface quality, depth, and rich color that enamel has to offer.  Understanding how to mix, apply and fire liquid form enamel on steel provides a variety of options for take-home application including working with 2-D mark-making into the enamel to create panels or to using the sculptural application of spraying or dipping the enamel onto found or fabricated steel surfaces

BUILT/UNBUILT

Built environments, like most things in this world, have lifecycles.  Our cities go through phases of decline and resurgence. Some buildings age gracefully, cared for and made to last, others slump and crumble with time.  A building nears the end of it’s life, showing signs of neglect. It is slated for demolition and torn down within a matter of days.  What was once a recognizable, familiar structure, becomes a pile of rubbish and then a cleared plot of land- all previous history removed.   It is it then that a new lifecycle begins.  Construction digs down, lays rebar, pours concrete and builds pillars.  The skeleton of the new building emerges. 

This is my first solo show since my graduate thesis in 2012 and will be showing both jewelry and sculpture.
