SOME NICE WORK BY SILVER CLAY CUSTOMERS, FRIENDS AND EMPLOYEES.
Pendant by Marcia Glenn of Albuquerque. Bezel made from Fine silver bezel wire imbedded in PMC3. 2007
River of Gold By Brant Palley 2004 Made from Art Clay silver paper, Art clay Slow dry and AGS 24K gold Size is 2 3/4" X 2" wide.
Here is a small ceramic Vase 2 1/4" tall (previously bisqued to 1920F or Cone 04) painted with silver slip (halfway up) then glazed with Laguna's R-15 Dark Red and fired to 1700F for 10 Min.
I then took it out of the hot kiln and put it in a sauce pot filled with shredded paper and covered it with it's lid.
The silver changes the color of the raku glaze. The silver was not perfectly smooth, don't try sanding it or the bisque shows through.
