Albany Summer School 2013 – Advanced Metal Clay Class

In this class the students firstly made two rings, one flat ring that would be hammered on a mandrel and the second would be formed on a mandrel.

Jill covered two pebbles with silver clay, when they were dry she cut them in two and took out the pebble. She then joined the two halves back together and wrapped a strip of clay around each. After firing she oxidised them with liver of suphur.

Wendy used a spoon to form a silver clay. She made individual petals to form a flower in her pendant.
