Dancing Turtle Studios LLC

Inspiring enamel and silver jewelry and artwork.

Santa Fe Society of Artists

Enamel on copper embellished with 24K gold.

A love of nature, earth and fire brought Cande Toner to the art of enameling and metalworking. Trained at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN and John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC, she has been enameling since 1993.
Enameling is the ancient process of fusing glass onto metal. Traditionally powdered glass is applied to metal and melted in a kiln at 1350 ̊ to 1500 ̊F.
Cande and Russ Toner of Dancing Turtle Studios take a more unconventional approach.
The metal is cut to shape and hammered to form a slight dome. The metal is then annealed, cleaned and glass is sifted on the back and fired to produce a counter enamel. The piece is then cleaned again to prepare for the final firings, leaving the natural fire scale in place as design elements.
Special ink is prepared from black oxide and painted on to the bare surface.
At this point the kiln is heated from 1750 ̊ to 2000 ̊F, glass is applied to the surface and the piece is fired again. This process is repeated up to twelve times. This higher temperature is used to bring out an ancient and earthy look as well as a special clarity and depth in the glass.
“There’s something in the fire, a purifying effect, an allowance for new beginnings, the essence of which has always fascinated me. I enjoy pushing the traditional, firing hotter than advisable, creating unusual designs and bringing an attitude to my work that makes it different than any other.”
All work is handmade in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
