Society of Arts & Crafts
Jessica Calderwood
Floral Fictions: Recent Work by Jessica Calderwood 
January 31, 2014 - April 19, 2014
Reception: Friday, January 31st, 6 - 8pm

For the past decade Calderwood has developed a unique body of work largely through enameling, an ancient process of fusing glass to metal. Floral Fictions, presents recent sculpture and jewelry that combine flower and botanical forms with fragments of the human body to address the narrative of human life cycles: change, growth, aging, and death. Her beautiful and exquisitely crafted objects offer humorous and sometimes ironic insights into what it means to be alive. The exhibition will also include sketches and collages that provide a glimpse into the artist's working process.

     CHRIS HIERHOLZER

TORCH FIRING DVD

A dvd using a rare and beautifull technique that chris hierholzer has developed using sgrafitto with fine gold foil using a torch to fire instead of a kiln. the enamel is wet packed. it has lots of intructional and easy to read text and limited audio with optional torch set ups at the end.

 Torch firing is a perfect way to fire enamels for those with limited space and can't afford the high cost of a kiln.

A layer of 18k gold alloy with a rich yellow color or 22k gold alloy with a bright yellow color is bonded with sterling silver to form two distinct surfaces. The 18k gold layer is similar to that of most gold-filled products, while the 22k is two to three times thicker than gold-filled, giving it more workability. Surface treatments, such as engraving, scraping, folding, and twisting, can be used to accent the two surfaces.
