#96. Repousse’ (for april

November 29, 2009

Formed.
Well formed.
In relief
with the sweetness of silver
or gold
or bronze
copper also.
It is so much labor
to start from tar
and hammered metal.

So bright the pattern
so bright the smith.

    Repoussé is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side.
    It is almost never used any more. April used it. It suited her.
