Metal Forming

Shirley Weisbrod's pewter bowls and candelabra are made from pewter ingot that is melted and cast in a mold.

Shirley Weisbrod's copper bowls and cylinders are made from copper sheets and plates that are spun, hammered and etched.

The etching process involves coating parts of the piece with an acid-proof paint and then briefly submerging the piece in a bath of acid. The caustic liquid "bites" into copper, eating exposed areas to create a surface relief and visual texture in the metal. The etched parts are patinated black.
