CRMT 225 - Enameling

Enameling is the art of firing colored glass onto metal. The transparent, opaque, and opalescent enamel colors are layered to produce richness, detail, depth, and brilliance in this durable and painterly medium. Traditional techniques such as cloisonné, grisaille, Limoges, basse taille, plique-á-jour, and champlevé, as well as contemporary and experimental processes are explored. Once they have gained a facility with the medium, students produce jewelry or small jewel-like paintings. Formerly CR 249
