This weekend we held a torch fire enamel workshop in the studio. I taught the history and basics of fusing glass to metal using an acetylene torch and tripod. We experimented using both transparent + opaque enamels and played around with firing times to achieve different surfaces like sugar coating, orange peel, fully fused and over firing. We had such great energy in the studio this weekend! Check out a few pictures of pieces made by students.
