Silver and energy walk hand in hand.
A fascinating material that we love to work with.
Silver (or Ag, number 47 if the periodic table) has a long and entangled history with human existence. Silver is one of the first five metals to be discovered by humanity. Humans have been using Silver for at least 5000 years. Registries of silver usage for jewelry and decorative objects are found culturally across the globe. From China to Japan, throughout South America, Greece, Turkey, and Egypt, where Silver was more valuable than Gold. The Incas were expert silversmiths, they believed Gold was the sweat of the sun, and Silver came from the tears of the moon. Over 1.6 million tons of Silver have been mined throughout history. Volume-wise, it is a cube with a 55-meter edge, roughly as tall as a 17-story building.
The creation process with Silver
Trema Silver creations are handmade by master craftsmen, using the ancestral traditional lost wax foundry process. First, the desired piece is sculpted. Then, the sculpture is used to create the respective hollow space in a mold. The mold is filled with wax and left to dry. The wax piece goes into an oven-proof container filled with plaster. Upon solidification, the container goes into the oven, allowing the wax to melt, creating the space to be filled with Silver. When the metal cools off, the plaster mold is disjoint, and the raw creation is there, ready to be washed, assembled, welded, polished, engraved, hallmarked, packaged, and shipped.
