Wooden Prayer Box with EZ960® by Joey Wade

Written by Rhonda Rein
This unique prayer box was created by Joey Wade, a Visual Arts teacher at St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes School in Alexandria, Virginia. The Religion Department asked for a wooden box for students to write prayers and put into the wooden box, so Joey delivered! We wanted to share this box on our blog to show that not only can EZ960 Sterling Silver Clay be used to make jewelry, but it can also be incorporated with other objects and media such as a wooden box.

Joey explained that at first they tried to cast a mold from a school pin, which work great; however, the seal was too small for the finished piece. Mr. Tom Johnson, a Technology Education Instructor created a mold using a software called Fusion 360 and a 3D Resin Printer. The mold was printed on an angle to help produce the finer details.

The picture below shows the 3D mold alongside the fired EZ960 with Liver of Sulfur.
















To finish, the seal made from EZ960 was inlayed with glue and epoxy into the box. We hope this project inspires YOU to incorporate silver clay with another media such as wood!
