This stunning piece is just 4" x 4" but is packed with visual interest and tons of texture. Made of Sterling silver, copper, bronze, brass and gold filled. Each circle is hand cut and hand textured with hammers and stamps. The circles were layered up on a base of Sterling silver bars and soldered in place then adorned with itty bitty balls of silver and mixed metal granulation. A dark patina was added to highlight all of the textural motifs then a layer of lacquer was added to protect the color. The piece was then hand stitched to a hand quilted background of black linen which in turn was hand stitched to a stretched canvas that was painted black. The backside is finished with a heavy paper and a sawtooth hanger added.
