I "heart" PMC
Last night Melanie let me play with her precious metal clay (PMC) and helped me make this heart pendant. We fired it in her kiln for 30 minutes. This is amazing to me, since regular clay takes about 36 hours in the kiln.
While we were waiting, she made this coronation ring for me. I got to watch her solder it together while using her torch.
If you love the ring like I do, click here to look at her stack rings for sale.

A really good pot is in the details. --Doug Casebeer at the Ceramics Workshop in Jamaica '10
There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
