My silver clay journey...

 My journey began studying jewellery making in art college aged 17 and later working making silver and gold jewellery in a gallery in London. The first time I saw metal clay being used was a light bulb momentwhen I realised it had such huge potential. I began working with PMC in 2003 and I was lucky enough to train with the inspirational Mary Anne Devos who developed much of the original metal clay
education programmes. I have been teaching it in my own studio, local colleges and arts centres since 2008. This pushed me on to gain other qualifications: a BA Hons in Professional Development in the Creative Industries, an MA in Fine Art and qualifications to teach in the Lifelong learning Sector.

 Favourite silver clay technique…

So many skills cross over when you use metal clay, from cake decorating and model making to woodwork and dressmaking: they all help you understand how different materials work and how to construct things.  One of my own favourite techniques is using moulding processes to create textures and details to add
to my work. I mainly look for textures in nature but also enjoy creating my own.

 What excites me most about silver clay...

One of metal clay`s greatest attributes is to take on texture as well as form, offering jewellers a huge new creative and sculptural dimension to work in, free of the restrictions of a million expensive tools and the limitations of sheet and wire.
