Chasing and Repousse

Methods Ancient and Modern

By Nancy Megan Corwin. Few techniques in metalworking are as useful as chasing and repousse. The repousse technique is a process whereby, using repousse tools, flat metal sheets are punched on the backside to create undulating forms that are further elaborated by working the front side of the metal with chasing tools. Both processes can be worked on virtually all metals and in a scale that ranges from delicate jewelry to large sculptures. Chasing and repousse have been employed for centuries to embellish metal objects. In this text, the reader will find clear and practical instruction not just for beginners but for experienced metalsmiths as well. With more than 450 photos and illustrations, including studio process and examples of master works, Chasing and Repousse is an impressive addition to the body of literature on metalsmithing. 184 pages, hardcover.
