“I enjoy working in a variety of materials, but metal casting is one of my absolute favorite methods! It is great for both creating jewelry and working with the figure. Although the lost wax casting method is certainly intensive, the results are extremely satisfying!” Her work and more can be viewed at www.maiapalmer.com
