Mokume Gane is a technique that creates a multilayered metal laminate. This is a labor intensive metal to produce and is rather expensive as a result. The fascination with this metal is the patterning that can be achieved with combinations of metals and some inspired carving techniques. The technique was developed in Japan in the 1700s to create decorative sword blades.
This is an old technique where patterns in metal are achieved by carving into multiple fused layers of different metals. These laminates were carved to reveal intriguing patterns. Mokume Gane means “wood eye” because the metal has patterns that are suggestive of “eyes”. Over time artists have adapted the original techniques to create elegant ornamental objects and beautiful jewelry.
