Chasing & Repousse`: Sbalzo & Cesello
- Repousse` (Sbalzo) is the process of forming the contours of a design from the back of a metal sheet using blunt hammer-struck punches (a chisel-like tool).
- Chasing (Cesello) refers to the detailing of a design from the front using smaller, specially shaped punches.

Artist's Statement
The ancient chasing and repoussè techniques are the purest and most expressive forms of metalsmithing. They bridge the worlds of jewelry and sculpture. Capturing the intrinsic beauty and sculptural qualities of metal is a life long passion. Both beginners and experienced students are welcome.
