I fell in love with precious metal clay the first time I heard about it. It feels like the alchemy I used to read about in school, and later in fantasy novels. You take a bit of clay, sculpt it, fire it in a kiln, polish it a bit, and you have created a piece of 99.9% pure silver. It can be fashioned into jewelry, used as art, or as an accent piece.

I have spent twenty years as a special educator, a school principal, and Hebrew school teacher finding fulfillment in opening new worlds for children and teens. Having found my inner artist (I am certified as an instructor for PMC and Art Clay) I aspire to bring the creative and magical world of precious metal clay to others.

My pieces are reflective of my eclectic background. Having held jobs that range from waiting tables, working with horses, to teaching in public and Hebrew schools, my art demonstrates my love of the simplicity of children. My "A Dori-bull" (see drawing above) speaks of my journey to find contentment while making a little mischief.

I am willing to do custom work, as well as to modify any of my designs to suit your needs.

Dori Daus, Artisan and Teacher.
