Finally spent a few days in my studio nonstop....I had an urge to make a ring and since using Hadar's clay, I feel a great lack of fear when I try something new. I think it is just the feeling of having a big chunk of that wonderful silky clay that she invented. So I started and this is how it looked as an unfired piece...and finished. I cannot wait to try another. I really have had reliquaries on my mind for several years, both glass ones and polymer but I will try that in the bronze as soon as I get a few hours to really dig in.
I am so happy with the ring especially the strength of it. I was even able to put it on a mandrel and tap it larger. It was a joy to make. Hadar's Bronze clay.
