Enameling Days Are by Far My Favorite Days: An Interview with Ashley Gilreath

Don’t miss this special opportunity to study with an incredibly talented new instructor in our Enameling Studio. Ashley Gilreath describes herself as a metalsmith, enamelist, and time traveler. Ashley hand fabricates all of her work using high quality precious metals and vitreous glass; sometimes utilizing heirlooms or found objects that she scavenges from the dark and secret corners of antique stores. In her upcoming class, learn all about the process of champlevé, a specialized process in which enamels are inlaid and fired into recessed areas of a metal surface. Spaces are created by piercing a design with a jeweler’s saw, then soldering the design onto a flat background. Enjoy our interview!CP: What can students expect in your upcoming class, “Enamel Like a Master: Saw & Solder Champlevé”?
