Winter term 2010 - metal work
The current high price of sterling silver grain meant that only PMC (fine silver) items were made this term, along with quite a lot of pewter. Below we have a series of words (and a couple of charms), made by Eleanor Rogers in soft wax, moulded in silicone rubber, cast in PMC then fired and polished. Next to it is a picture of an earlier stage, where the words were cast in coloured epoxy resin together with a PMC charm, and a stamped trinket. Then there is a picture of a very heavy-gauge copper bracelet, by Michelle Chan.
