Copper Vessel Repair and Tool Making

Copper Vessel Repair and Tool Making

While at the SOFA QuadState Roundup in Ohio last weekend, I purchased a couple of outstanding copper vessels from the featured demonstrators, the Maestro Ignacio Punzo Angel family of Santa Clara Del Cobre, Michoacan, Mexico. Unfortunately, the TSA goons searched and re-packed my bag and one of the vessels was damaged on the trip home. A nasty big dent way down deep in the thing. Hey, "no problem," says I; after all, raising holloware was my specialization in college. Just one tiny fly in the ointment - I could not locate my snarling iron to bump out the dent down in that vessel.

Hi! I'm new to this site. I'm originally from the Hudson Valley (NY) and am currently living in Northern Vermont. I have taken several metalworking classes and find that I really like it. The classes included raising, casting, forging, enameling, & jewelry making.
