Technique and passion
Learning the art of engraving metal takes years of dedicated study and endless practice. The hard, sharp plate, made of silver or gold, is sculpted with a chisel, following a detailed drawing. The skilful use of a burin enables the artist-cum-craftsman to reproduce visionary depictions in the metal.
An art form passed down through the centuries, one that has always required time, ability and a sense of beauty to reproduce the model to perfection, the aim being for technique and passion to triumph over wonder.
