*Metal Clay is 99.9% Pure Fine Silver which has been finely ground and mixed with an organic binder which produces a clay-like material. When fired, the binder burns away and the silver solidifies. This clay can be sculpted, carved, stamped, cast, virtually manipulated anyway that you can work traditional clay. If you have a desire to create beautiful pieces in silver without the need for a silversmith’s tools or experience.

Also the studio is a available for your classes or private art parties.
