Raising of a bowl in silver begins with a flat disc. This disc is initially sunk into a hollowed log then raised over steel stakes with a raising hammer. The piece is annealed after each round, to soften the metal after work hardening. It is finally carefully planished to give it a neat surface, and polished.
Beverley has been creating cups, spoons and beakers since 2000. Show above is the 'Glint' exhibition from 2001
