Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday

My words today are taken from  Beth Hoffman's Looking For Me.

Repousee'- Shaped or decorated with patterns in relief formed by hammering and pressing on the reverse side. Used especially of metal.

Monteith bowl- The bowl rests on a foot-ring or splayed-foot and is usually decorated with gadrooning, embossing vertical fluting.

Gadrooning- is a decorated motif consisting of convex curves in a series.
