Mokume Gane – Process

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.

I am a research associate in the Center for Regional Heritage Research at Stephen F. Austin State University, where my work is focused at the confluence of archaeology, art, engineering, computer science, and the humanities. I am particularly interested in the application of 3D technologies to archaeological problems, geometric morphometrics, network analyses, archaeological theory, and archaeological science.
