3-D Projects for the Classroom: Precious Metal ClayPIE Educator Exhibit
University of the Arts, 210 S. Broad Street, Terra Hall, 9th Floor

Precious metal clay is an amazing and unique material, well-adapted for K-12 classroom use.  Made of pure silver or bronze, it molds and handles like putty, fires in a kiln, and becomes a solid permanent silver. Safe and non-toxic, precious metal clay work involves simple tools and equipment that students of all ages can easily use.  

K-12 educators enrolled in our Spring course with artist Chris Darway worked with various forms in silver and bronze to produce jewelry and small sculptural objects.  Chris covered wet and dry fabrication, firing times and temperatures, use of the kiln, and alternative firing methods.
