Hello, I am an Art Clay metal jewelry artist just getting started in the "shows" circuit. My experience has been in art galleries and a few small shows to date. I am a Certified Level I Art Clay instructor, certified by Aida Chemical in 2008. I am a partner in a small gallery, Stray Art Salon, in Birmingham, AL. In the current economic climate, I am hoping to add to my sales through shows. Looking forward to reading the blogs and gleaning good info from veteran show artists on this site. Example photo of my work is attached.
Oh, I wish you were closer, too. This stuff is so much fun to work with - especially if you are used to traditional fabrication - it's kinda like silly putty (remember that stuff) that fires to make fine silver.
Great to have you aboard. I work with sterling silver, copper and brass but I have never worked with PMC. I keep wanting to take a workshop but always seem to have a conflict when they are given. It looks very interesting. I also do beadweaving. I'm way up here in Pa although my father lived in Mobile, AL after retirement - said he needed to get out of the cold up here. You are probably gearing up for show season down south while we are winding up ours. I'll be busy until Christmas and then nothing until maybe April. This has been a great site for me to gain all sorts of info and I am sure you will too.
