I use the torch to make granules because I find that I control the size of the granules better. I will try your suggestion for bronze metal clay. Thank you!

I hope to have two new pieces done in pmc to submit to the Powder Metallurgy exhibition.

Thank you for your comment, Rebecca. I am trying to move away from the usual granulation designs and create volume as well as a more modern aesthetic impression. But is it a difficult process, time consuming and often not very successful. Trying things out now with precious metal clay...wish me luck!

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
