Kum Boo

Kum boo is the ancient Korean technique of applying thin 24K gold sheet to sterling or fine silver. I heat the piece to around 600 F and burnish the gold sheet down on the silver. The process of heat and friction create a eutectic bond. Traditionally, the designs are composed of simple strips of gold or cut with paper cutters. I prefer to cut asymmetrical shapes that fit with the design of each piece of metalwork.
