Salmonberry grows in coastal Oregon, producing salmon-orange colored berries that resemble a blackberry. Living in a forest, I have lots of material to work with. This piece was produced by coating a leaf with silver clay. When the piece is fired, the leaf burns to ash, leaving it's silver impression.
Silver Art Clay is made from silver reclaimed from photography and X-rays, combined with an organic binder. It can be formed just like clay: rolled, stamped, coiled, joined, and is then dried. Then it is fired by kiln or flame and the organics burn out, leaving .999 fine silver. It is versatile and fun to work!
Made using .999 fine silver clay.
