Service Description

He's back by popular demand! Michael Marx takes sculpting metal clay to a whole new level in this fantastic weekend master class. In this two and a half-day technique-heavy class, students will design, create, fire and finish up to 2 pieces of wearable sculpture that capture the amazing world of plants and flowers. In this demo driven class, Michael will unveil a plethora of techniques to create a variety of flowers, leaves, and vines that go beyond traditional 2-D clay work. He will teach his envelope, eye, and other glass capture methods and demo multiple unique texturing arrangements and ways to bring the clay to life with shape and form. Finally, forget the boring bails! Students will create unique captures that enhance their deisigns and bring them to life with added elements and layered texture, learn how to create patina to create unique finishes and build polishing boxes. We will break for lunch. Starting with a basic understanding of the different methods, students can push the design possibilities with additional embellishments and their own creativity.
