So, I took my second class of silversmithing at 92Y and this time I was making bowls from 4” square flat sheet (24g).
We worked from the inside in a circular motion all the way from the outside to the inside and and then round and round, each time annealing the copper.
To sink a piece, you work from the outside and work your way inside using a ball peen hammer.
To raise a piece, you work from the inside and work your way out.
There’s lots I still need to learn, but the bowls are coming out ok, they need to be deeper, so more hammering next week!
I also worked on more rose petals, not sure if they’re for practice or if they’re actually going to be anything... watch this space!
