This year has gotten off to a great start - it is low season for wedding rings, which means it is the time of year I get to explore other creative avenues. I'm getting up to speed using my new press to fuse and forge larger mokume billets. This allows me the freedom to use the mokume in the larger format of vessels - something I had been wanting to do for years! I feel I have just scratched the surface with these two new pieces, a goblet and a tray. There are so many expressive possibilities with mokume patterning; I can't wait to make more.
