About the Artist

From large ceramic sculpture to graceful vessels, from unusual silver jewelry to arresting mounted silver sculpture, Vera Lightstone has worked and taught sculptural media for years. When Precious Metal Clay (PMC) arrived in this country from Japan, she became one of the first senior teachers and a delighted enthusiast. of this completely new medium -a clay-like material that fires quickly to silver and gold! She is certified with the PMC Guild and is a Senior teacher with PMC Connection, teaching advanced and beginners’ workshops in her midtown Manhattan loft-studio to students from the New York Tri-State area and others who have flown into NYC from all over the country. She offer classes to those who have never used art silverclay, and want to discover this medium for themselves, to those artists looking to hone their skills, leverage the different properties of PMC, PMC+, PMC3 and Art Silver Clay, learn new techniques and work towards their own certification.
