This is one of my pieces.
You will learn all of the techniques I've used:
This workshop will resemble the sample 5 day workshop described here.
You will learn the basic principles, skills, and techniques necessary to create your own cloisonne´ enamel pieces. We will start with the basics and quickly move through color layers and into your first cloisonne´piece.
You will be challenged to explore your creative process, learn about enamel design, and consider how to make pieces which are connected to from a personal point of view.
You will make many color samples to begin developing your enamel vocabulary. More experienced students will have the opportunity to review the basics and then continue independently with guidance from Ricky. Students should expect to make between 6-10 pieces during the week. Some will be color samples and some will be cloisonne´ pieces.
