This 24 minute instructional video is full of close-up photos of the torch firing process in real time. In addition to showing the firing of the undercoat, counter enamel and top coat, Chris shows you his interesting technique of carving through an overlay of gold foil to "draw" a design.

He also includes several different options for the torch firing set-up. Viewing this will help beginners without kilns or anyone wanting to try an alternate way of firing enamels.

Chris Hierholzer has been involved in metals for 50 years, in foundries, welding shops, and jewelry. He is fascinated with the process and its constantly changing creative aspects. He started creating enamels during the 1980's and during that time he was part time assistant to William Harper.
