Metal Clay Today Rising Star

I'm extremely flattered to report that I've been honored as a "Rising Star" by Metal Clay Today Magazine (an online magazine dedicated to metal clay). Online for all to peruse, it includes a two-page spread on my work. I was recommended for this honor by the incomparable Holly Gage. It's so exhilarating for icons in the field to recognize my early contributions.

This second issue of the magazine includes articles on a range of fascinating topics: the hot new copper clay, an artist showcase of the work of Alexandra Daini who mixes porcelain with ACS Overlay Paste, designing silver additions to glass with Zentangles (a doodling paradigm that I've played with before), and using paper form metal clay to construct tubular beads. And my bronze bird rings are on the cover!

Go read it here on pages 8 and 9!

Beyond the feature article, this blog was also included as one of the three "Best of the Blogs" selections chosen by Lori Phillips in this issue. Lori evidently particularly resonated with my November 16 post on procrastination. ;-)

Guess that's a reminder to get the holiday preparations finished, so I can sneak a few hours for art...and sit down with a cup of tea to read every smidgen of the new issue of Metal Clay Today.
