Some days it feels good to create a flowing shape, without a set shape or guide... just a flow. This piece is a sleek yet eye catching with the patinaed silver, granulation and gold flashes. I added 24K gold foil using the ancient Korean technique of heating the silver until it is ho, and adding the gold in thin sheets using an agate burnisher. Keum Boo creates such a rich depth and literally means "attached gold" as the molecules of the surface of silver bond to the gold allowing the metals to fuse together.
