I’m really excited to announce Lorena’s new stamp will soon in the mail to all of the very patient Premier Subscribers of Metal Clay Today.
Lorena is an accomplished artist. Her style is so unique and recognizable that whenever and wherever you come across one of her pieces you know it. So when she agreed to work with Candace Gates (Dynasty Studios) to create a limited edition texture stamp for Metal Clay Today Premier Subscribers we were thrilled!
Lorena was born in Mexico where she had a first hand opportunity to experience the diverse cultural and artistic expressions of her country while traveling around Mexico.
She lived in Chiapas, Mexico for the first years of her life which gave her a wonderful experience and memories about the folk art and the amazing jewelry that native Indians wore and made for special occasions.
Lorena initiated her studies in Mass Communication Sciences at the Universidad Iberoamericana Noroeste in Baja California, Mexico to later continue with her major in Mass Communications and Advertising at the University of Texas at El Paso.
After several years of doing art and graphic design, as well as managing the business side of her family’s printing shop, she moved to New Jersey to start her own family.
In 2003 Lorena and her family moved to San Antonio, Texas where her passion and love for art motivated her to study metals at the Southwest School of Art and Craft. It was in this school where Lorena had her first experience with metal clay through the hands of a wonderful teacher, Claire Holliday.
Lorena’s work is full of her culture and traditions from Mexico, every piece has a story to tell.
She earned her certification from Rio Rewards and is a member of PMC Guild, SNAG and MCASA (Metal Clay Artists in San Antonio.)
Her new book, “Behind the Brooch: A Closer Look at Backs, Catches, and Pin Stems is available at http://www.schifferbooks.com/behind-the-brooch-a-closer-look-at-backs-catches-and-pin-stems-5372.html

Lorena’s stamp is only available because of the collaboration and talents of Candace Gates of Dynasty Studio.
I thought it might be a good to include a reminder about Dynasty Studio’s Angel Policy.

One thing I’d like to include… if you are inspired by the work of Lorena Angulo in your designs, mention it! If you make a piece without changing a thing, have a heart, give the credit to Lorena and Dynasty!
