Join Us In Shaping The Future Of Metal Clay

Metal Clay Is Our Shared Passion

AMCAW’s mission is to encourage a flourishing international metal clay community by nurturing artistic and instructional excellence and providing resources to inspire, engage and support artists of all levels. AMCAW will help to unify us, regardless of brand or formula preference, experience level, or location. The organization will introduce metal clay to new users and bolster its reputation in the greater arts community.

Together, we will shape the future of metal clay

To fulfill the mission, our efforts will focus first on developing:

  • A metal clay conference recurring annually or bi-annually
  • An interactive website that will evolve to meet the community’s needs
  • Outreach channels to share news, challenges and inspiration
  • Opportunities to showcase metal clay art online, in print or in exhibitions

“We have the distinct opportunity for being on the forefront of creating metal Clay’s future, but it will take a concerted effort as a whole to make a difference and guarantee its future. AMCAW is that opportunity and each of us needs to make a commitment to be an active part of this organization.“
