Think its about time that I show something new.

This is my Mayan mask made from copper and metal
clay, it was inspired from a huge life size mask in the Chicago Art institute.

I have been playing around with silver and copper quite a bit this month. I really like the contrasting colours.

I etched these two pieces in ferric acid just using a marker pen, it gives a really interesting effect.

Next its my four a month for November this leaves me one more set and then I have completed  the challenge. Then I can really concentrate on other projects.

The big bead show

Wow I am so thrilled to teaching at The  BIG BEAD show on the 20 October at Sandown Racecourse, Esher, Surrey. I hope to see some of you there.
I will be teaching two short classes for  beginners, so if you fancy a go at metal clay then this would be a perfect opportunity.
Follow the link below for more details.

Here is some of my work.
If you would like to see more of my work then take a look at my web site.

Happy crafting everyone.

Octobers four a month

This is my four for October, I decided to share them early so that I am well ahead of the challenge and can have a little sit back and relax.

These are just a few of my experiments using ceramic and combining it with metal clay.
Two of them are attached to the ceramic and two are not.

This is a new material to me and I am having such fun adding the colour.
