Marlynda Taylor has been involved with metal clay since 1999, taking her first certification class with Mary Ann Devos. She was one of the students in the first ever Art Clay certification held in the United States and briefly served as an Art Clay Senior Instructor. Soon after, she became one of the original 10 students asked to become Senior Instructors for the newly formed PMC Connection. Since that time as a Senior Instructor for the PMC Connection, Marlynda has applied her teaching skills, once applied to language arts in the public school setting, to teaching all levels of metal clay classes.
Some of her favorite classes are those which combine metal clay with her favorite medium, fused dichroic glass or with glass enamel. Above all else, Marlynda loves the excitement of leading students into those ahha moments which come when beginning students see their first creations turn into bright shiny silver.
