ETCHING & SCREEN MAKING
During the Renaissance etching was a widely used technique to create lasting and elaborate patterns. Today the same ancient technique allows for the craftsman to imbue the same quality of permanency and beauty onto modern furniture.
The craftsman takes the brass sheet and stencils a desired pattern before placing it within a wooden drum filled with acid.The wooden drum is then rolled over to allow for the acid within to seep onto the exposed parts of the stencil. With the acid eating through the brass cleanly, a floral pattern is formed.
The use of heritage patterns and embellishments grant character to furniture.
