The Process

All of the items I create start from either a photograph, drawing, or computer generated piece of art. Here I will use an image from my "Beer Speak" series to demonstrate the process.


First...

An image is selected


 


Second...

The color is stripped from the image


 


Third...

The image is printed onto PNP (press and peel paper) – a resist used in etching


 


Fourth...

The image is etched into copper



Fifth...

Wax pieces are created using the copper etch plate


 


Sixth...

Using the lost wax method, pieces are centrifugally cast using sterling silver and gold

Lastly...

Each piece is hand patinated and polished
