EXHIBITION
Superbly Sintered 2024:
Masterful Designs in Metal Clay

It’s inspiring to see great work in metal clay, and it’s rewarding to see your own innovative work recognized by the metal clay community. You won’t want to miss Superbly Sintered 2024: Masterful Designs in Metal Clay, a curated in-person exhibition of exceptional works in metal clay. 22 pieces chosen by a distinguished jury will be exhibited at SINTER. 

The exhibition, Superbly Sintered 2024: Masterful Designs in Metal Clay, supports AMCAW’s mission to nurture artistic excellence and bolster the reputation of metal clay as an artistic medium.

SINTER MARKETPLACE

The SINTER Marketplace vendor hall will feature your favorite metal clay suppliers. Get a close-up view of tools and supplies you can usually see only in online photos. Ask questions of the experts and let them know what you’d like to see from them in the future. SINTER would not be possible without the generous support of these vendors, so be sure to show your appreciation. Besides, there’s nothing better than unpacking your shiny new tools when you get home from a metal clay event!
