I love to go for nature hikes, riding bikes, cooking, and photography.
How did you find out about metalclay and then start working with it?
I used to make beaded jewelry and wanted to go forward and experience other media. So I found a PMC class in 2006 in a local college magazine.
Sitting and creating is my therapy. I can sit hours, make, roll, cut and create.
Do you do any other type of art?
What is your art sensibility - precise or organic?
As for myself I prefer the organic, uneven look. But when custom order come I try to be as precise as I can.
I still don't have confidence. I have SO much to learn!!!!!
What is your favorite tool for working with metalclay?
In my home studio.
What is your favorite thing to make?
How do you work, and when? (for ex. assembly line or one at a time)
I look at the mess on my table. I try to arrange my tools and then I make more mess.
I usually sketch them on a piece of paper or write a memo on my IPhone.
Do you ever use a sketchbook?
Do you ever teach classes and where?
Yes, Most of my work is custom.
What are you working on currently?
What's next on your agenda to make?
Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us, Liad!
