Happy July 4th to you all! I hope you all know that this blog is about YOU, the metal clay community. Today, I’m tentatively sharing an example of my own work, and it feels quite odd to write about myself on this venue.
“Protector of the Lair” is a hand-sculpted and carved pendant. This is my first silver dragon, with surely many more to come. I’ve been making intricate polymer clay dragons for the past couple of years, and it was a big step forward to translate that work into silver. I’m Wendy McManus, and you can see more of my work at my Big World Studio blog, or on my Flickr photostream.
I’ve added a feature to this site that should make it a bit more user-friendly. You can now click on Featured Artists above in the navigation bar to see a list of every artist that’s been featured on the site since I started it in May 2009. If you’re a new visitor to the site, be sure to check the list. Perhaps I’ve featured your work and you didn’t know it. Wouldn’t that be a nice surprise on a holiday weekend?!
