My article in Metalsmith Tech is about the endless possibilities and inevitable challenges of working large with nonferrous metals. It covers the Turtle Pocket Doors for a large media screen and the Etched double-sided room divider for the main salon of the same superyacht, plus the Eastern repousse, mokume gane artwork I created for the cover of my latest book, Giving Voice.
If you’re a SNAG member, you can log onto their website and watch the full version of the cover animation for Giving Voice. It spans the 3 year process of flat sheet to puffed out Eastern repousse relief and the patterning process of the mokume gane all in less than 2 minutes.
I’m excited to be part of the magazine! Its existence is the culmination of years of volunteer work I did for SNAG to help preserve for posterity the enormous knowledge within our field. I deeply appreciate being invited by former editor Emily Zilber to write this article. All the best to their new editor Adriane Dalton to continue both magazines’ exciting changes.
