A hammer is for a silversmith what a brush is for a painter: using it, he inscribes a structure on a surface. Hammered decoration (martelé) is proof of mastery of our profession.
Lively, intricate martelé work creates hundreds of reflections, and gives rise to a breathtakingly beautiful play of light and shadow.
