METL 225 Enameling

3 credits 90.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

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 cloisonn?, grisaille, Limoges, basse taille, plique-a-jour, and champlev?, 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.
