Flowers from my Soul !

Happy with how my ring looks like after fired. 
I hand sculpted the calla lilies and hollow formed and carved the ring with FastFire Bronzclay. 
I fired my ring full ramp to 1550 F and hold there for 3 hours.

FastFire Bronzclay and Gilder's Paste African Bronze.

I know some people has had bad experiences firing this type of metal but I want to let you know that it is possible to have a great experience. We need to understand that this wonderful material is very new and we are all learning with it. Every bad firing I had at the beginning was a great opportunity to learn something new, I never stop playing with the material until I got the real connection with it. I really enjoy creating with bronze and I hope all of you who had bad firings will keep on trying.

  1. Gorgeous Lorena! By following your firing advice, I too have come to love the fast fire bronze. I started sculpting some tiny charms with PMC 3 last night and decided that I much prefer the ff bronze for sculpting. You and your work are an inspiration to so many of us!

  2. Thanks !!
    I also feel FF is much better for sculpting.

  3. I just bought some ff bronze and some copper clays to play with. When the time comes to fire I know I'll be worried about it sintering properly! I guess experimentation is the only way to find out...

  4. Yes, experimentation is the way to go. Play, have fun and I am sure you will love them !

  5. Ce minunate sint creatiile tale !!!!!!!

  6. I think experimenting and learning are the only ways to go ahead and make a niche in this market.Unless you explore you can not give new pieces of new imagination to the consumers.This piece is awesome and the treatment has made it look like wood.
