„Lair of visions” in AMCAW calendar
My pendant „Lair of visions” was published in AMCAW calendar (Alliance for Metal Clay Arts Worldwide) for 2021.
This piece is made of sterling silver, milled sterling sheet, fine silver bezel wire, electroplated gold, three labradorites and two peridots. This pendant was hand sculpted using simple tools. No moulds. Every element was formed from scratch. It’s a combination of sculpting in wet clay, slip painting and dry contruction. Stone settings were soldered after firing. The bail was constructed from milled metal, combined with an ornamental element sculpted in metal clay - the elements were soldered together. This piece is a poetic reminiscence of my strolls and meditations in the forest. Forest and its gifts as a source of vision
