Fall is my favorite season. I adore the earthy smells and vibrant colors, but mostly I’m intrigued by the lacework patterns found throughout the autumn foliage. Wanting to capture those rich, organic textures, I developed a process of fusing metal clay paste onto woven fine-silver wire. Although I use PMC3, cast sterling silver, and fine-silver wire, you could tweak this process to work with other metal-clay slips and metals.
