Stage 2

Then an intricate design is formed using a precise copper wire netting.

This step is repeated several times to enhance the beauty and durability of the design. The hand laid enamel is unique to each urn.

Stage 5

The urn is then gently hand-scored and polished for a smooth surface further exposing the fine copper / bronze wireaccentuating the overall appearance.
