This process is known as drop casting. Using recycled silver, it is heated to a molten state and then dropped into water. The colours produced by the effects of it hitting the water can be retained by no further treatment or soldering. Alternatively the silver can be brought back to its usual colour by processes normally used in silversmithing. Each drop cast item is unique because the shape produced when hitting the water is random, although some control can be gained by the height used to pour the molten silver into the water and several attempts are often required to produce these beautiful shapes and colours. Naturally there is more work to be done because the shapes can produce very sharp edges!
