Brookfield Craft Center

Teaching is in full swing. I've had private classes in my home, and the last week-end of January will find me at Brookfield Craft Center, teaching a Basic PMC class. All new people will start on the wondrous adventure of creating textured pure Fine Silver works of original art with the amazing Precious Metal Clay. Mold it, form it, texture it, and fire it in a kiln at 1650 for 10 min, and you end up with a pure Fine Silver piece of jewelry.

Living on the Edge

I find myself working in a different way. I go staight to the workbench and start to arrange colors, textures, maybe a sketch, but it's more like creating in the moment. Very interesting way to work, and I feel like a collaborator with the materials.
