The Art Clay World Guild UK Conference 2010 will be held in York on 16th - 19th September. My good friend Lynne Glazzard and I will be teaching the Enamelling workshop together. This is going to be a fun workshop!!
We have both been working on pieces as examples of the techniques we are teaching. This is my main example and I have another simpler piece nearly finished which I will post here later this week.
I have called this piece Something Fishy (for obvious reasons :-) )
Pop over to Lynne's blog and you can see her first example piece.
We will be teaching a combination of creating textures and recesses for enamelling on your pieces using Lynne's great paper texture technique (like the water splash on the pendant above and the fish on the reverse below) and then adding extra colour with my Enamelled Accents technique (like the fish above). For good measure we will also be covering decorating the back of your piece. How exciting is all that!!
This piece has a fishy texture on the reverse (sorry it has not photographed too well. Not the best light today for photos!) and a decorative bail and syringe set Aquamarine CZs.
