The Enamelist Society Featured Member - Judy Pyle
Artist's Statement:

"In 1995, I began taking art jewelry classes at MICA Jewelry Center in Baltimore, now the Baltimore Jewelry Center. By day I was a studio art teacher at Gettysburg high school, and by night, I was driving to Baltimore to take fabrication classes with Kirsten Rook, enamels with Shana Kroiz, alternate materials with Betty Heald, and a host of metalworking workshops with noted artists. My kitchen became my studio, with a borrowed Flexshaft and a pullout meat cutting board as my bench. Cooking became a distant memory."

Carpenter Art Enamel Foundation

For over 3,000 years, art “enameling” has fused glass onto metal or similar media using intense heat to create something of beauty. We are dedicated to this art. We are all about art enameling for everyone! The Carpenter Art Enamel Foundation is a 501(3)c non-profit organization chartered in the state of Kentucky in 2003 as the W. W. Carpenter Enamel Foundation. We recently changed our name in 2018 to better reflect our mission.

The Foundation was founded by Woodrow Carpenter, who had a passion for enameling until his death in 2017 at 101 years old. Our current building was completed in 2006 and includes over 11,000 square feet of space including studio and classroom space, offices, a store, a huge museum, and a library. We conduct workshops, classes, tours, sell enameling supplies, and provide online support to the enamelist community. We are now in the process of significantly expanding our programs and level of support.  www.enamelfoundation.com (old site www.wwcef.com)
