Hi yloh,

 

Thankyou. This is not repousse but rather a one piece lost wax casting. The wall thickness varies from about 1.3 to 2mm. Though I carve the entire piece from a hard wax, there is a good deal of detailing and finishing done in the metal itself, using gravers, diamond tools, etc. I use chasing tools to get certain textures and small details. The walls seem strong enough that I don't need any pitch inside. I do some hand raising of vessels and have done some elementry repousse forms - I love the process and will hopefully do more of that one day. There is so much to explore - I Love Life!!

Thanks again for your interest here and you kind words.

 

Magnus

P.S.

Happy New Year All - May it be a Healthy one!
