Christmas is a wonderful time of year, not just because we get to eat, drink and be merry but because, for metal clay artisans, there is inspiration all around us if we only look.
There are so many textures on the Christmas decorations on my tree and I've been moulding away capturing them. The piece de resistance came this morning when I received a Christmas card from a friend that has a beautiful textured surface. The curly boughs on the tree are so lovely and I just know this will look so good pressed into some wet clay. I can't wait to see the results I get.So don't forget to look carefully at those Christmas cards...your friends might have sent you more than just their Christmas wishes!
