We’re delighted to be welcoming master metal clay artist Pam East back to the studio with a fun weekend project! There are as many ways to create a box as there are artists who make them, and Pam will show us her method with this creative shadow box pendant. Along the way, we’ll explore a full range of metal clay skills, including rolling, texturing and cutting clay; sanding and prepping greenware elements; and creating and fitting mitered corners. We’ll flex our metal clay muscles as we design and build a unique scene inside our boxes, using her methods for making, refining, and adding tiny elements. She’ll also cover the best ways to achieve a great patina, and her tips and tricks to polish detailed work. As an added bonus, we’ll design and build a matching pair of earrings for a completely unique jewelry set.
This workshop is open to all levels! If you’ve never tried metal clay, this is your chance to learn from one of the top metal clay instructors teaching today. And if you have past metal clay experience, we guarantee you’ll learn something new from Pam’s exhaustive library of methods, tips, and tricks. We’re providing all the tools, equipment and materials you’ll need to complete the projects, so you just have to bring eye magnification and have fun!

Pam has been an invited speaker, giving classes and lectures at the Enamellist Society Biennial Conference, the Metal Clay World Conference, and the Pan-European Metal Clay Festival. Pam says “My philosophy can probably best be summed up by Share the Joy. I love working with metal clay and enamels, and there’s nothing I enjoy more than sharing my enthusiasm with my students. Fun, I have found, is contagious. In my teaching, articles, and appearances, I have always worked towards making these art forms as accessible as possible to a wide audience. Even while maintaining a high standard of excellence, making beautiful jewelry need not be difficult or expensive.”
Born and raised in Southern California, Pam now resides in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and Porsche, the wonder dog.
