Metal Clay, also known as PMC or ArtClay, is an exciting material developed in the 1990s in Japan. Microscopic particles of silver are mixed with a moist binder to create a material that has the feel and working properties of clay. Using techniques and tools Maggie used during her days as a sculptor, she creates unique wearable art. After air-drying, the pieces are fired in a kiln to temperatures approaching the melting point of the metal, where the particles fuse together to make a dense, fully metallic object. Fired metal clay work can be polished, soldered, hammered, and enjoyed like any fine silver jewelry.
