Ramsey Pualwan | Metalsmith
All the work begins from a flat sheet of metal. I hand cut the components of each and every piece and form them to the desired shape with hand and foot-powered machinery without the use of heat. This is called cold-forming. I then attach the components to one another using lead-free solder. Over time, I have applied this technique to copper and brass as well, stepping outside the parameters of Sturbridge.
Today my work includes elements of Early American, Traditional and Contemporary styles, as I strive for designs that are as pleasing to the eye as they are functional
