Description

Hone your sculptural skills in the flame, using inspiration from African masks as a starting point. We will decorate these shapes with various materials, including reduction powders and enamels; to create mask beads and other stylized faces. You will learn about the endless decorative possibilities that powders can create. The result will be beads that look like artifacts unearthed from an archeological dig. We will discover the transformational power of masks, revealed in the flame, one bead at a time! PREREQUISITE: Glass Beads I
