The Joy of Metal Clay - Information Resources and a note about donations.

There is a plethora of information online, the following is a series of great online references for information related to metal clay. I have shared in the past the Squidoo Lens on Bronze Clay by Margaret Schindel. Here are more of her compilations of metal clay information worth mentioning:

A note about Japan's Earthquake:
On a more important note the recent disaster in Japan has rocked us all and has left many of us wondering what we can do. The metal clay community in the Yahoo Metal Clay Gallery Group have been discussing ways to contribute. One option offered has been to donate shelter boxes and this has recently been organized and has already lead to over $2000 being donated. You can contribute to this effort by donating money via Paypal to the Fund on behalf on the metal clay community.

HOW can you contribute?
You can send money via Paypal. Jackie Truty at Art Clay World USA has offered to coordinate this effort. This is not brand specific and the contribution is being made as the Global Metal Clay Community.
Go to and sign into your account.

  • Select Send Money option

Donations are being accepted through tomorrow March 21, 2011 is an organization that "provides shelters and lifesaving supplies to families who are affected by disasters".

Every little bit can help those who have lost so much.
