Silver ring Furrow#1 in two books

PMC guild Annual 2011
Hattie Sanderson Contemporary metal clay rings

To my great pleasure the silver ring, Furrow#1 from the Earth collection, is accepted in two books.

The first is the Annual nr. 5 from the PMC Guild. In this book you find the best of the Metal Clay world creation and now also my ring :-).

Even more special is that they used the ring for the back cover among my friends Susan Ellenton and Donna Penoyer. Really cool!

The second book is from Hattie Sanderson.She is a renowned american artist and writer. The book is completely dedicated to making rings. A recommended work if you use Metal Clay!


In the same time periode my ring was also featured on the online exhibition on
"This exhibition embraces the unique personality that metal clay brings in the form of jewelry, vessels, functional and decorative objects."

You can still see it on the crafthaus site.

Transfers on silverclay in Art Jewelry Magazine

Ceramic Decals article in Art Jewelry Magazine.Transfer technique publication in leading US Jewelry magazine:

"The januari 2010 issue of the well-known american magazine Art Jewelry features an article by Helga van Leipsig describing Ceramic Decal-techniques on silverclay-jewels.
A meeting at the PMC 2008 conference in Purdue IL sparked the interest of Jill L. Erickson, one of the associated editors of Art Jewelry Magazine, resulting in an 7-page illustrated article in that magazine."

The Making of a Web Class

Hi there!
Here a little peep into the making of the Ceramic Decals web class. On wednesday 12 oktober 8pm ET, I will be live on Craftcast. Right now I am finalizing my material for the decal class. Lots of information, pictures and even videos to make the process clear.

I started with making a storyboard (see picture below) of how I wanted the information to be organized. It was a fun thing to do! I found so much information that I wanted to share :-).  The class has six chapters:

Ceramic Decals
Applying Decals
Firing Instruction
Trouble Shooting

All filled with many examples. Alison and I will talk in a class like setting.
If you are taking the class life you can even ask questions through a chat box.
Isn't that amazing what technology can do nowdays!!!

Download the class right here: Ceramic Decals with Helga van Leipsig

“Pieces made with this technique have a different look then, for example, enamel. It opens another array of applying color or graphic work on jewellery. It can be an excellent way of developing a production line.”

Organizing through a storyboard.

A look at my desktop right now.
