Online Workshop: PLIQUE A JOUR: SOLDERED WIRE FRAMEWORK with AMY ROPER LYONS
February 8, 15 & 22, 2023 from 11:30 – 2:00 pm ET
In this online workshop, we will explore the exciting technique of plique a jour, using the soldered wire method. Students will construct a framework out of fine silver wire and enamel the openings, resulting in a stained-glass effect. Fired without a backing, only surface tension holds the molten glass in place while in the furnace. We will learn how to fabricate and solder the framework, to apply the enamels, to create smooth color gradients in the cells, to fire successfully, and methods for finishing the work. Important considerations when designing plique a jour will be discussed, as well as ways to create three dimensional objects.
