Deciding on teaching projects...


Teaching workshops involves choosing projects that are both appealing to wear and constructive as a learning curve for the student. These fit the bill pretty well I thought.
I had a little window of time on Sunday to make these as an example of what a beginner might choose to make on their silver claying debut with me. They involve rolling the lump clay into sheets, cutting base squares and letting those dry, then texturing three small sheets, cutting them and using some of each on top of the dry base sheet. Adding paste, drying, refining and firing with a butane torch complete the lesson.

sheesh I thought it was a city skyline. I like it and think a new to silver clay will be having fun doing this with you. I wish I could clay with you.

yes yes...I see that too Kathi! That's what I love about textured abstracts, the mysterious way 'pictures' appear...
awwww, I wish you could come clay with me too!
