A compendium of beautiful works done in metal clay…

premiered at this year’s World Metal Clay Conference.  It’s called “New Directions: Powder Metallurgy (Metal Clay) in a Sheet Metal World”.  Originally developed as a juried on-line exhibition on Crafthaus.ning.com, it grew into an eighty page catalog.  Perusing the pages, I’m totally amazed at the beautiful and innovative pieces being executed by artists working in metal clay.  Their talent is astounding!  You may want this catalog for your very own if you are interested in jewelry and other art objects made of metal clay. But there is still a better reason for purchasing this catalog.  It was created to benefit CERF+ (Craft Emergency Relief Fund) which provides financial assistance to craft artists including emergency relief assistance, and maintains resources for emergency readiness and recovery that benefit all artists.  Purchasing this books benefits a truly good cause and all proceeds are donated to CERT+.    You can order the catalog through Blurb.com – enjoy the art as well as knowing you are helping artists in need.
