There is something exciting about a form that has a sense of movement , it challenges our mind to consider what it is and what’s happening, the natural flowing a wave or a birds wing in flight, neither can we own or capture, only watch as it changes.
The tools we use are a hidden part of the beauty of the final product. Over time I find that I have favourites, planishing hammers come in different shapes and sizes, some with highly polished ends and some textured or thin. They all give different texture and feathered designs. These made by my father and grandfather are particularly special and give great results.
