V8 Alexander the Great

"... stylish, elegant, and bespoke metalwork ..."

Made to Commission

The face of Alexander the Great was worked into this copper drinking vessel using the time honoured technique of "repousse". Specially made small blunt chisels and rounded punches were used to slowly hammer out the face whilst the work was supported in a bowl of pitch. Both sides were worked alternately.
