Minimally designed handmade silver vessel. Perfect for wedding gifts, anniversary presents, and home decor. Each piece starts as a flat sheet of silver and is hammered into a three-dimensional form with traditional silversmithing techniques. Sometimes in the hammering process, the silver becomes so stressed that it rips. In this ongoing investigation of form and function, I continue to explore the beauty in destruction. All tears happen naturally in the process and are incorporated into the form. Pieces are finished in a silky satin finish and signed with my name and 925 for sterling silver. Arrives gift-wrapped with care instructions.

Metal/precious (Raised sterling silver)

3.25 x 3.25 x 3.25 inches
