139. Laura Moore: Employing Japanese Precious Metal Clay, PMC, and objects from nature, the artist creates a one-of-a-kind form that shapes fine-grade silver into wearable art. Laura finishes using a variety of intricate surface treatments to bring out the texture and detail of every piece. They are enhanced with delicate silver chains and gem stones making each piece original and uniquely charming. www.BillysaBadKitty.com
In the words of designer, jeweler and PMC® master Tim McCreight, "Every material has its special properties and one of the tasks inherent to each of us as artists is to figure out how to make the best use of those properties." Some paintings lend themselves to watercolors, others call for oils. Some sculptures are carved in marble, others are forged from metal. This project challenges you to see Precious Metal Clay as a signature element no matter what the preferred medium may be.
