Silver and Gold
Pieces in the silver and gold collection represent sterling, fine silver, gold or a combination thereof. A variety of time-honored silver-smithing techniques were used to create distinctive surfaces and designs.
- Keumboo – an ancient art form of applying pressure and heat to fuse pure gold foil to the surface of silver.
- Granulation – the application of intense heat to fuse small metal balls of silver and gold to the metal surface.
- Texturing – to create interesting surfaces with various hammers, wires and impressions.
- Fusing – the process of joining metals, such as fine silver and gold, with intense heat.
