Follow 2

Our silver objects in the “Follow” series take their name from the method in which we follow the movements of the silver in forging it.
The beginning of each shell is formed by a rectangular, oval or round plate of fine silver 999 ‰ of 1 mm thickness.
A process involving tens of thousands of minute hammer beats slowly and little by little form the shape of the bowl.
For the exceptional quality of fine silver fully to show, we leave the hammer marks visible and tangible.
In the next step we brush the surface ever so gently and light with glass beads.

In the last part of the operation the upper edge of the object is ever so slightly melted (by means of a TIG welding torch) to a shiny edge. Follow 2 weighs 44 ounces and has dimensions of 5 x 13,7 x 10 inches.
