This involves hammering a ferrous or copper alloy sheet into a wooden block with a hemispherical depression in it, called a doming block (Figure 16).

The starting point of production is a sheet of ferrous metal (probably steel) with low slag content. 14 Both spinning and raising leave diagnostic surface marks (Plate 3a).
