Silver Metal Clay Retreat

Visitors to the Metal Clay Art Studio this weekend for a retreat were a lovely couple from Fremantle, Nadia and Peter.

Nadia was introduced to silver metal clay while Peter swam in the pool and watch the winter Olympics on television.

Nadia is making elements for a bracelet. Here she is finding patterns and shapes that she likes from experimenting in polymer clay.

These are the shapes in metal clay, they are dried and sanded, holes drilled and ready for firing.

Nadia will send me a photo of the finished bracelet.


After a swim in the pool, time for champagne and nibbles before going out to dinner and watching the sunset over the marina at Two Rocks.
