Just a note to say "Hi" to everyone. I am new here, but not new to the world of Artist Blacksmithing/Metalsmithing. I will be posting photos of my architectural ironwork as soon as I can better figure out how to download the photos. I am guessing my images may be too large for the file.

Here is a picture of my latest mokume billet that I have fused. I fused it using the James Binnion/ Steve Midgett method that is talked about in Steve Midgett's book. Mokume Gane, A comprehensive Study. The plan is to hammer it down to a 12-14 inch disc (or the biggest 18 gauge disc I can get out of it). Once it is patterned I will be taking it to David Huang. We have talked about doing a collaborative project abd are interested in experimenting with mokume, raising, and then chasing and repoussee- I'll try to keep the pictures updated while the project progresses.

Hi All, I finally finished and installed the brass panels. I'm slightly disappointed with the back, which no one will ever see, but other than that I think they turned out pretty good. This was my fist experience with Brass and by far the most difficult challenge I've tackled yet. The brass "Crown" above was already there and was what governed the finish.
