A journey to world stuff-making domination

Penland 2013, Days 9 and 10

leave a comment »

Day nine was sadly the beginning of the end. It was the Monday of the last week of the workshop with only a couple more full days in the studio and the morning was filled with more demos. We learned how to make our own sifting screens, using etching cream, how to do sgraffito, what the deal is with transparent enamel, using stencils, using graphite, and adding gold or silver foil to the enameled pieces. (I’m overwhelmed just by the list). Today (day ten)  Arthur went through a long list of the tools he likes to use. (I’m a little obsessed with tools). And most importantly, learned how to make a really cool broach setting for our enameled pieces.
