Silver Metal Clay Workshop

Today I had a workshop with a prominent Perth glass artist, Philomena from Dramatic Glass Designs.
Philomena was introduced to the world of kiln-fired glass in the late nineties, developed a passion and never looked back. She choose Bullseye Glass which has the ability to fuse and create beautiful bubbles and craters, textured surfaces, and multiple shadings, all of which form an integral part of the finished piece!  She has studied different methods of working with glass with several International renowned glass artists- Judi Elliot, Brenda Page, Steven Klein, Catherine Newell, Narcissus Quagliata .... and Marc Leib (Perth)who has been my constant inspiration!
As an introduction to Silver Metal Clay, Philomena made some earrings and pendant. She plans to learn more about the metal clay and incorporate her glass with the silver.
