At 10:00 she arrives at the studio. First we meet, while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea and freshly baked muffin. Maartje turns out to be familiar with ceramics and never worked with silver clay. This will be a challenge. She decides to design a ring, so that we can combine different techniques. The calculation of the appropriate ring size, the fastening of porcelain in the silver clay composition, the final firing, sanding and polishing. Many notes are made, remembering this amount of new information is almost impossible to do.
At noon we will have lunch with tasty rich sandwiches and fresh orange juice. Maartje works briskly, despite the required firing schedule for porcelain, we can finish on time. And look, it has become a beautiful ring.
Choices, choices, it is hard 😉. Pendant or ring, round or square, narrow or wide.
And finally going home with this beautiful ring, you worked top!
Thanks for the cozy input and nice conversations.
See you again soon for a next workshop, or perhaps as a colleague.
