Default Japanese Sword Furniture Metal Artists

Hello,

Feet first I jump,I have no work to show you,I wonder how this forum can help me understand the process of Japanese metal artists of old? Does anyone here have any knowledge of their work and processes? I am humbled to be here but my facination beats my embarrassment, please excuse my expedient abruptness, life is too short~A

Hi Ojo no Kami,
There are a few people here that did spend some time with great japanese masters.
I believe Barry is one of them. He has got some very nice posts with pictures of these masters. You would have to look around.
This one is the one I can find to show you the overlay technique.

This one is more chinese design, but the technique wont differ that much.

I also believe Jim Kelso makes very nice art in the japanese style.
Will be something to research for you on this forum

Thank you for your timely reply,

Your work is very nice and gives me courage that I have found the right teaching environment. I just went to the store and bought some needle files and cold punches and started hammering away on some copper, I have no idea what I am doing but still have been able to copy a picture that I am not ashamed of for a first go(but definitely not post worthy like yours!) given what direction I want to go as per your reply what advice do you suggest? I want to make Tsuba and Menuki!

Hi Ojo no Kami,
If you would ask this question on the main forum, you might get a lot more answers.
How to do that?
