The copper plate and stainless steel plate must be supported by steel bars. Since forging is mainly made by pure handwork, the producer can make full use of the extensibility of the metal material in the process of forging and hammering, and flexibly exert the ability of artistic creation, so that the plate has a unique texture effect, thereby adding handwork. The simplicity of the hammering produces a heavy beauty.  The technique of forging craftsmanship represents a complementary artistic style formed by the artistic achievements of people's manual labor in the modern industrialized society and the mechanized beauty of the previous industrial age.
