enameling part 5

in addition to making marks on enameled surfaces with tools, we also learned how to make marks with appliqued wire, metal, and steel screen. i tried scraps of copper flashing, thin strips of fine steel screen, and handmade steel staples (i have a thing for staples these days). i especially like the "ghosting" that occurred on the copper pieces. you can see where i had originally placed each piece and then how they all jumped during firing.

thanks for reading.
