My student Georgia Bassen, who lives like there is no tomorrow, read my last posting on Friday morning, and on Friday night she came to class with these gorgeous copper clay pieces that she pulled out of the carbon while it was still hot:
You can see more of Georgia’s work in the photo gallery. Some of her pieces are made with copper and bronze clay fired together as clay. She is the only one I know of so far who has managed to do this. Firing bronze and copper clay together is tricky, and I hope to post about it as soon as I know more.
