February COM…Metal Clay!

January 24, 2015 , In: Blog Hops, Clay, General, Metal Clay

Hi all, it is time to show off the component of the month for February 2015!  I have the honor of providing this month’s component. After polling the group, I decided to do some metal clay.

I am new to the medium, but as I talked about in previous posts, love it and strive to find my voice with it!

These are all copper, using the same original carved stamping by me.  The dots around certain designs are actually holes through the design, hard to see in the photo!

Three (3) of you will win components in copper, or white copper, not shown here, to create a design and bring your own unique spin to them, You will then participate in our Component of the Month blog hop!

Leave a comment on this post to win a chance to receive components of my choice and blog about your creative experience! You must have an active blog to participate.  Comments should include blog name and an email to contact you.

I will choose participants on Monday, 1/26/15!

    would love to win as would a lot of others but would really like to be able to work with copper. It is my favorite metal and has been for many years before it became fashionable

    Dear Melissa, I love these metal clay components and would love the opportunity to design using one of them. Your original designs are great and I love how the copper looks. It's my favorite metal to work with so Having this chance would thrill me!

    Great job with the copper clay. At this point, I am torching with butane and it takes forever. I have a ceramic kiln and have worked with clay for decades, but as you know, the ceramic kilns (with the sitter) will not hold a temperature. I haven't broken down and purchased one that will work with metal clay. I would love to create a combined jewelry piece with one of your copper clay components. They are great! I also have a clay blog; Thanks!
