Helen Shirk
Helen makes vessels and other large sculptural forms onto which she directly applies the color. Obvious references to nature take advantage of the richness of color created with the Prismacolor. Notice the more textural aspect to the copper, which aids in grounding the color. Shirk teaches at San Diego State University.

Deb Karash
Her work resembles the ways in which many enamelists work. She works on an often flatter surface, applying images to the surface. She then makes a setting to hold the prismacolored piece.

Okay, okay... this isn't on metal, it's on shrinky-dinks. But it's using Prismacolor, and it's so saturated and fun.

stuff to look at

I took a trip to New Jersey over the weekend for some family stuff but I stopped by Gallery Loupe and the Design within Reach store.
