Fine silver clay consists of fine silver particles suspended in an organic binder. After forming, drying and refining the piece is fired in a kiln. During this time the binder burns off and the result is a piece that is .999 pure silver. After firing it has been tumbled to bring out the silver shine. Lastly it has been dipped in an oxidizing agent and the piece has been polished by hand to bring out the beautiful details of the ginkgo leaves.
