chasing and repousse

Here are a few samples of Chasing and Repousse I have done. I hope you find them intriguing enough to want to come to this months meeting in Virginia


Image #1, The deer was chased and repoussed in sterling silver sheet; working in the flat, and then bent round to a bracelet. 3.25 x 2.25''

Image #2, The Rams Head Drinking vessel started out as a flat sheet of sterling and was hand raised to cup form. Then the ram's features were hammered out using a snaring iron and chasing tools. 7 x 3 ''

Image #3, This shell shaped pendant is chased and repoussed in the flat and then embellished with electroformed copper stripes and surface set with white sapphires. 1.75 x2 ''

Metal is amazing. I love how humans work it, and how it takes over and works humans. Vulcan, fire, transforming something that is solid into something else that only you have created: how wonderful is that?

I'm now on the cusp of a move, hope to focus on more artistic things soon. The idea of sketching in a gallery is one of those soothing thoughts that I use to try to bring on sleep...

I can't wait to see these in person. Some of it is reminiscent of your earlier work which I have, but you've taken it to a higher level. You are truly a multidimensional artist, K
