Here are a couple items I purchased at the Country Living Fair. The wooden spoon was hand carved by E. Gregg Kristophel from http://www.riverwoodtradingco.com/. He had some really great stuff.
The plate on the right was made out of recycled pop cans. Each piece is hand-hammered from the recycled aluminum by experienced craftsmen. The first step is to have the design hand engraved in reverse into a block of steel using a hammer and chisel. They then place the piece of aluminum on the engraved steel and the craftsmen force the metal into the engraving, creating a forward design. After cutting the piece to the desired size, it is edged and then colored to detail. The art form is called, "repousse." I am giving this plate to my Mom for Christmas.
