Join Us In Shaping The Future Of Metal Clay

Metal Clay Is Our Shared Passion

AMCAW’s mission is to develop and advance the international metal clay community and to promote the medium of metal clay to new users and the greater arts community. To do that, we provide resources to inspire, engage, educate, advance, and support artists of all levels. AMCAW seeks to unify the metal clay community regardless of brand or formula preference, experience level, or location. We work to introduce metal clay to new users and bolster the reputation of metal clay in the greater arts community.

The Board members of AMCAW are a group of passionate professionals and artists committed to these ideals. AMCAW is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and our work is conducted almost entirely by volunteers, led by metal clay professionals and enthusiasts from around the world. While AMCAW is based in the U.S., our board members and our scope of work seek to unite the global metal clay community.
