I thought some of you might appreciate this. Mokume Gane is a historic Japanese metalworking process, and has been used to create many historic and modern artworks. These students from Stephen F. Austin State University’s metalworking program are learning how to make a Mokume Gane billet. For images of completed Mokume Gane works, click here.
