I received good news last week. I got into the Champleve Enameling on Metal Clay Class at the Metal Clay World Conference in Bloomington, IL in July. So I will be learning BronzClay from Gordon Uyehara and Champleve Enamel from Pam East. Yeah I can’t wait! A very expensive and early 30th birthday gift to myself.

I am working on a lot of bronzclay pieces right now. I found an incredible snow owl mold the other day. I believe its an old soap mold, I made a bronzclay mold of him. Pictured below is the unfired green piece of my snow owl. The owl is huge though he is 3 inches long. I am hoping by firing him in bronze I can shrink him to a more manageable size. Is 3 inches long and an 1.5 inch wide just too big to be a pendant?
