Here is a look at the casting method used by the Kenyan artisans to create the small brass ‘V’ in this collection:
Step 1: A small round container is filled with sand.
Step 2: A 'V'-shaped metal plate is used to create an impression in the sand.
Step 3: Molten brass is poured into the mould.
Step 4: This brass is then left to cool and solidify. Once the metal has solidified, the sand is removed and the brass ‘V’ is exposed.
