Metal Clay Notebook

Launched in September 2014, this is an initiative from Tim McCreight and Celie Fago. Tim and Celie say, "the Notebook contains no ads and is tied to no single brand or manufacturer. There are no strings or requirements, only the collective wisdom of metal clay artists everywhere. We who work regularly with metal clay value the strength and wide knowledge base that comes from staying connected. The Metal Clay Notebook is designed to deepen this connection in an unintrusive and entertaining way - nothing more, nothing less." You can see all the previous issues of the Notebook here.
