INSTRUCTORLindsay Huff is an artist and metalsmith who creates wearable art and works primarily in enamel. Her artistic process stems from a fascination with her materials and environment. Lindsay graduated with a BFA in Metalsmithing from Syracuse University, where she began her first experiments with enameling. As an artist, Lindsay loves the act of transformation and the dialogue between certainty and uncertainty: how glass enamels react with each other, the anticipation of waiting for a piece to reveal itself after a firing, and the hammered metamorphosis of sheet metal to finished vessel.
