Something Fishy!

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.

If you use Silver Clay you really should come to the Conference. Booking is now open and there is a fantastic line up of workshops so if you don't want to do enamelling you will find loads of other exciting things to do. We have a Master Instructor from Japan coming over especially to teach a masterclass and workshops. So don't miss out!! Book Now!


  1. The pendant is fantastic, Joy! Love that splash.

  2. Lovely. Wish I could be there to take your class.

  3. Thanks Laura. I think turquiose is going to be my new favourite colour to enamel with for a while!

    Maybe I'll meet you next year Ruth. I am giving a pre conference workshop and a conference presentation at MCWC 2011 in Chicago. Really excited about it :) Will you be going?

  4. I love that enamelling in the fishies and also the detail on the back! I wish I could be there for the conference - I would most definitely be visiting your enamelling workshop. Maybe another year!

  5. WOW that's a fabulous piece :)
    Will look forward to seeing you at the conference
