Made from Precious Metal Clay (PMC), also known as Silver Clay is a fascinating material. PMC is a combination of organic binders, water and microscopic particles of silver. It is formed into a desired shape, dried, sanded and then fired in a kiln. The firing process removes the binder and fuses the metal into a solid form. Working with PMC is quite different from traditional silversmithing as it requires a different set of skills, ones that tap into those of potters and sculptors, and is ultimately more environmentally friendly.
