Metal Clay

We are lucky to have been taking a series of workshop with Hadar Jacobson! For those of you who are not familiar with her work, she is truly an amazing artist. Her website, artinsilver, is like an online museum! In addition, she has developed a line of metal clay - bronze and copper - that has superb workability. The best part is that you do NOT have to keep the clay cold! It comes in powder form thus has an unlimited shelf life. Mixing is easy peasy. You can find information, including a video on how to mix the powder, at her online store, as well as her blog.

We have been busy playing with rocks! Here is a pile (with a pillow and lentil beads) - they all still need to be fired except for one.
