A New Path: Enameling in the Round

Blogging the workshop experience “Enameling in the Round,” with Harlan Butt at Peters Valley

- by Nicolette Absil, 2014 Peters Valley/crafthaus Workshop Scholarship Recipient

This opportunity will allow me to expand my current enameling skills. While I already work with enamel, I mostly focus on creating small pieces focusing on mark making techniques. I hope this workshop will equip me with the knowledge and skills to focus on 3-D pieces, allowing me to expand my body of work to wall pieces and vessels.

 

Thank you to Peters Valley and Crafthaus for this great opportunity to study “Enameling in the Round,” with Harlan Butt! Follow the experience.

RULE THE WORLD

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!
