How proud can you be, when you enter a cozy and inviting studio at 10.00 AM, with the knowledge that the owner has gained her skills in the field of silverclay at your studio. Say, this lady has grown, totally fun!
I am driving with Renske to Nieuwegein. We are going for a day of metal clays. We use the clays of Hadar Jacobson. Hadar's Clay is metal in powder form which you can form into clay with deionized water. So you make exactly what you need and you can store the remaining for a long time. This clay is long processable and remains somewhat flexible after drying, thus less vulnerable. Practically all metals of Hadar's Clay can be combined together for beautiful unique results! And today Renske, Dani, and I became acquainted extensive with those metalclays. Copper, Bronze, Rose Bronze, White Bronze, Pearl Grey Steel to Steel, everything has been tried out.
Throughout the day there is coffee, tea or soft drinks. Of course, today a “small pie from The Hague” wasn’t lacking. Given the festive month, the choice fell on a speculaas version. For Dani, we have one more Amaretto flavored, this she can enjoy herself after our departure. Hé Dani, do share it with Richard and the kids ;-)
We don’t have time to fire the pieces, which requires a very precise firing schedule, so we decide to continue that process at home. We will keep each other informed of the outcome and results.
Dani and Renske, thank you both for the great day, we should do this more often!
