Hand raised stainless steel

Stainless steel is more commonly used with industrial processes, but in this case I had Jainarain raise 22 gauge SS sheet by hand.Usually with brass sheet the सलवट's which you get along the edges are smoothened down with the mallet and the hammer, but I liked the texture of these pleats. In a way what happens often is that one tries to leave things a little unfinished to distinguish hand made from machine made. I dont know whether this is a very good idea. there are better ways of distinguishing the 2 processes. hmmm! What I do like though is the colour and texture the steel acquires, satin. much nicer than the shiny stuff
