Congratulations to our Metal Clay Success Story Contest Winner, Dale Meyrick Wayne! I was thrilled to learn that Dale, an Art teacher was the winner of the drawing for the Studio Pro kiln by Evenheat. Dale won by submitting a photo of a necklace made by students of the Geneva School in Winter Park, Florida. Now the kids have a kiln to fire their projects with! Isn’t that awesome? Check out her website if you get a chance, she is a talented designer as well as a great teacher. Congratulations to Dale and her students!

Dale worked with her 7th, 8th, and high school students to create collaborative jewelry projects. The 7th graders carved eraser tiles based on Egyptian art, printed their images on papyrus, then chose their favorites to make copper charms. The 8th graders made coins from Bronze clay and her high school students made molds or sculpted silver clay. All three necklaces created by each class were made and sold at a fund raising auction.”
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Metal Clay Success Story Facebook contest. I had such a great time watching the photos come in! There are so many beautiful things being made in metal clay, and you guys are all so talented. It’s great to be a part of such a creative and happy community.
