    Using The Language of Art to Express Design Approach to Fabrication

    Day 1: Will include discussing intellectual tools of design. Works of Masters of Fine Art from Renaissance to Modern will be examined. Participants will look at basic proportions in design and their effects, including colors, shapes, and lines. Texturing tools and metalsmithing techniques will be explored while developing a design for the project, either a pendant or brooch.

    Day 2: will focus on making the object by applying the technical approach - making texturing tools, fusing 22K gold onto Argentium silver, cutting, texturing and creating surface treatments, soldering, and finishing methods.

    BIO: Wolfga ng Vaatzwas born in Namibia. As a child, he moved to Chicago and then to Germany with his parents. He attended Munich's Kunsakademie for a short time. Dissatisfied with the art institute, Wolfgang returned to the pristine Namibian desert. There, his own artistic voice thrived due to the complete immersion into an unspoiled natural environment. Successful exhibitions in Namibia and Germany followed. In 1990, he returned to the United States, where he created large water sculpture that were widely collected. Relocation to northern AZ in 2001, he began painting landscapes of the Southwest. A move to southern AZ in 2009, reawakened a fascination for gems and minerals from his childhood. Transforming quickly to work with natural stones and metals, he used his skills as a painter and sculptor, while getting used to working on a much smaller scale. Since 2012, Wolfgang has been seriously working as a studio jeweler, exclusively creating wearable art.

    Screen Printing for Enamelists

    In this information packed 3 Day workshop, Jan will be teaching some exciting new advances in mark making for enamelists. This technique was taught by Jan at the 2017 Enamelists Conference in Gatlinburg TN. Each participant will process two letter size silkscreens. The screens can be used to directly screen on flat forms but also are utilized to create decals that can be adhered to 3 dimensional forms. This process is appropriate for small scale jewelry, flat panel work, and sculptural objects.

    There will be a recap of general enameling techniques and principals, so even beginners will be welcome.

    BIO: Jan Harrell has been involved in the enamel medium for over 35 years. She received her BFA in jewelry and enamel from Texas Tech University in 1974 and her MFA in sculpture from the University of Houston Texas in 2007. For the last 27 years she has been the enameling instructor at the Glassell School of Art, the teaching school for the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas. She also teaches workshops all across the US. Jan exhibits jewelry scale and small object work nationally and internationally. Throughout her career she has been the recipient of numerous awards. Her work is included in several books on enameing and metalsmithing. View her work on the web site www.janharrell.com

    Silver Belt Buckles with a Southwest Flair

    Once again Roy Talahaftewa will share with us his exceptional technical and artistic abilities. In this workshop we are going to tackle a belt buckle. The face plate will be designed and then fabricated using many techniques - overlay, stamping, stone setting, riveting, and texturing. Roy will review and demonstrate these skills, but expects that participants will have a working knowledge of these techniques prior to the workshop. Roy will instruct us on how to fabricate findings to create the belt loop and stem, using the method he has developed for his own personal work. It will be a challenging workshop.

    BIO: Roy Talahaftewa (Hopi Water Clan) is from Shungopovi Village in Arizona. He works in silver and gold, and uses Hopi overlay, symbolism, and surface embellishments in his designs. Roy received his first major award for his work in 1981, and has earned Best of Show at the Heard Museum, among many others. Working with the nonprofit Pu'tavi Project, Roy teaches Hopi youth the art of metalsmithing and is an advocate and promoter of Hopi artists on the reservation. He teaches workshops at numbers of venues across the United States.
