Kumboo Technique

Jewelry by Jim Norton.

A new collection of work from artist Jim Norton is now available at Plum Bottom Pottery & Gallery. Working in the ancient Korean gilding technique, Kumboo, Norton’s pieces are each unique. He begins with fine silver, which is heated to more than 600 degrees, then burnishes hand-cut 24k gold foil forms onto it. Each piece is textured with a patina that brings out one-of-a-kind color patterns in the silver and seals and protects the work.

Plum Bottom Pottery & Gallery, open daily 10 am – 5 pm, is located 15 minutes north of Sturgeon Bay or five minutes south of Egg Harbor, off of Highway 42 at 4999 Plum Bottom Road. For more information, visit or call 920.743.2819.
