We Welcome teri Lovett in our jewelry program. Teri has a long experience in jewelry making and Enamel.
This is an introductory class for Basse Baille in jewelry making.
Basse Taille which translates from French as "shallow cut", is a design made on metal most often by carving, engraving, stamping, or engin turning, (textured metal) that is then covered by translucent enamel.
The recesses formed by incising the design causes the enamel to have different tones, thereby highlighting the design.
in this class we will use textured metal to create our enamel base. Then the enamel will be grade sifted and fired. componants will be available to make a completed piece.
This technique probably began in Italy in the late 13th to 14th centuries and is also referred to as "translucent enameling".
We have a 24 hour cancellation policy. Please feel free to contact us: 419.756.1700 or George@mansfieldartcenter.org
