Uno Alla Volta is proud to reintroduce Gianpaolo and his skilled team of silversmiths as they handcraft this ''performing chopsticks'' cat figurine. They use a very intricate process that takes weeks to complete. Each piece starts as a sculpture in wax, and then a mold is built around it. Silver is then hand-poured into the mold, left to set, and then hand-polish for a smooth and gleaming finish. Once the silver figurine is complete, jeweler's enamel is intricately hand-painted onto the surface, layer upon layer, to bring the details to life. Measures 2.5 inches by 1 inch. Handcrafted for Uno Alla Volta, from the hearts and hands of the artisans.
