Metal clay is an amazing material that is well adapted to classroom use. It is metallic clay made of either pure silver or bronze, which molds and handles like putty, fires in a kiln and becomes solid permanent silver. This material is unique, safe and non-toxic and requires only simple tools and equipment that students of all ages can easily use. In this course, work with various forms in both silver and bronze to produce basic jewelry or small sculptural objects, covering topics such as wet and dry fabrication, firing times and temperatures, use of the kiln and alternative firing methods. Topics may include projects for students, simple tool making and rubber molding, other basic jewelry techniques and use of metal elements and alloys in jewelry. Course content is designed for application in art classrooms.
