From ancient cultures through modern civilization, masks have symbolized our spiritual beliefs, captured our dreams, and enhanced our lives through art. In this class taught by Lyle Rayfield, students will design and create a mask pendant, while learning and practicing basic techniques in metal clay. Find inspiration from photographs or create your own design. What will your mask express?

Microscopic particles of pure silver are combined with an organic binder to produce the clay-like substance known as silver metal clay. When fired at high temperatures, the binder burns off and the metal particles fuse into a solid piece of silver. No experience is necessary, and all skill levels are welcome. Demonstrations and instruction will cover how to properly roll, texture, shape, refine, fire, and finish metal clay creations. All materials are supplied; magnifying lenses (if needed) and an apron are optional.
