When force is applied the metal contracts and extends, which eventually rises to form the desired utensil. The traditional craft starts with a flat sheet of metal, without soldering, the technique calls for tremendous patience and an experienced mind to delicately shape. At this stage, the vessel has already metamorphosed into craft.
