In the summer, I presented a new technique for working with PMC and
Art Clay at the PMC Guild conference called Negative Space Caning. It
is a technique that involves creating filigree, chambers for enamel
or polymer inlay, and patterns easily duplicated for tessellating
designs by combining Metal Clay and a combustible material that
disappears after firing in a kiln. It is a spring board idea that I
would like to share with others interested in exploring Metal Clay.
I’d also love to see your work that utilizes the technique, so if you
try it send me a picture.
