Statement

Raising is an ancient metalsmithing process that stretches malleable metal into striking contours. Using forged steel hammers, open and closed forms are created from sheets of bronze, brass, copper and silver.

Physically demanding, this process requires hundreds, often thousands of repetitive blows, producing a modest amount of work from a single artist.
