Fired enamel on metal

Discover the fusion of glass and metal using fire.

Description

The origin of this ancient technique of fire dates back to the first millennium before the Christian era in southern Mesopotamia, in Sumer, where the goldsmithing begins, replacing the precious stones.


In this workshop we recover the old techniques of enameling pieces by using ground glass, metal and fire.


In this workshop, we will work on the fusion of glass and metal and their incredible combinations.

We’ll explore how the oven is used and how it transforms materials.

We can choose endless techniques depending on the level of difficulty of the workshop.

Is it the first time you’ve worked on this type of piece? Would you like to perfect your technique?

We look forward to hearing from you!
