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. Beads and findings will be available for you to complete a necklace, bracelet or earrings at an additional cost.
Open Studio available for individuals who have attended my introductory class for Metal Clay. The studio cost is $25 plus the cost of the silver clay.

Carol and Syd are 2 of the 15 local artists from the Artists Guild of the Santa Ynez Valley that have been invited to show their work in the Spring Show at the Rehabiliation Institute Meisel Gallery in Santa Barbara. The Rehabilation Institute uses art as part of the healing process. The gallery was established by Founding Medical Director, Harris Meisel, MD., who feels art has a way of transforming a sterile medical environment into a setting of color and inspiration. Dr Harris, also an artist who displays his work at the Institute, has allowed artists from the Santa Barbara area to display and share their work within the gallery.
There will be a Show Reception, Feb 22, 2008 5-7 PM, and the public is invited to come and meet the artists. The Spring show will run Feb.18 - May 2, 2008. Viewing hours are M-F, 9AM - 9PM and Weekends 10AM - 5PM. Address is 2415 De La Vina St, Santa Barbara (805) 687-7444.
