The fusing process uses precise heat to bring the silver right to its melting point fusing the two metals together using no solder. The technique and aesthetic is inspired by fine Japanese Lacquer technique called Maki-e which uses gold powder sprinkled on a black lacquer background. This creates an ethereal, celestial aesthetic reminiscent of nebulas, clouds, and cosmic images. The use of simple geometric shapes offsets the organic pattern while reiterating the shapes found in the cosmos.
