In this 2-day workshop you will get several hands-on, step-by-step demonstrations on how to create with PMC silver—in lump, sheet and paste form. Learn how wonderfully this material can be manipulated by rolling, molding, carving, and adding texture. Once fired, it can be oxidized and polished just like traditional metalsmithing. Explore this fantastic medium while making pendants, earrings, and hollow beads.

Students will be encouraged while exploring these techniques to find their own voice and style and have whole lot of fun doing it. PMC is a unique jewelry making material. This clay-like product is a malleable substance that is composed of fine silver particles in an organic binder. It can be sculpted and manipulated like potter’s clay. After firing in a kiln, the end result is your unique design created in fine silver (.999).

Level: Beginner

July 28 + 29 | Sat + Sun | 11am - 5:30pm | $200 + tool list

He has received numerous awards for his metal clay creations, including second place at Fusion 2001 in Chicago and first place at the Cultural Symbolism show at Perdue University in 2010. His work is highly recognized among the Metal Clay community and has been featured in more then a dozen books, including some authored by Tim McCreight, Cece Wire, Barbara Becker Simon, Jeanette Landenwitch, and Linda Kaye-Moses. In the PMC Technic, he–plus nine other artists–were invited to write about their unique creative approach to PMC. He wrote about Viscosity Painting—his specialty.
