Raising a Pitcher


I started out with a 6 inch diameter circle of 18 gauge copper.  Raising is a pain-stacking process, that takes many many rounds of hammering and annealing.  I am almost getting there!  Next on the agenda are adding a spout and handle.

After raising the pitcher, I also raised a shallow bowl.  Next, I planished their surfaces.  Then I added a spout to the pitcher and made an electroformed handle.  Soldering the handle onto the creamer was a challenge. But, after a few unsuccessful attempts I was able to attach them to each other. Finally, I made an electroformed spoon for the bowl.  And, at last I am done!!
