Henryk Winograd,one of the world’s greatest 20th Century masters of traditional silversmithing techniques, passed away on February 18th, 2008 at the age of 91. He was the leading practitioner in America of the historic art of Repoussé. Some of his works are in collections at the Hermitage. He produced beautifully crafted jewelry, each piece done using the techniques of repoussé and chasing. Repoussé is the process of hammering the reverse side of a sheet of silver to form a raised design on the front. Chasing is then used to refine the design on the front of the piece.
