All About Black Mountain Gallery
Our work is handwrought. Using alloyed metals in wire and sheet form; we heat, melt, solder, twist, bend, hammer, grind and buff all of the work by hand. Hand forging is an ancient art and differs from casting in significant ways. Casting is done in soft materials such as clay or wax. These are formed into the desired objects and then submerged into a "plaster"-filled container. Once they are heated the wax/clay burns away, leaving a void in the hardened plaster (investment) to be filled by molten metal. If a rubber molding is made of this void, virtually unlimited replicas of the item can be mass-produced, all without ever working the metal. Casting is truly magical but it does not capitalize on many of metal's finest properties. Only by directly manipulating the metal with pliers, hammer and torch can you bend, stretch and marry the metal on a molecular level. Hand forging is time consumptive; each piece must be created completely unto itself, as if another has never been made....CLICK The "Black Mountain Gallery Jewelry" Link Below For More
