New Angles: daily inspiration

Alistair McCallum

Posted in art, crafts - art by menno1976 on October 8, 2009

Looking for more info on metallurgy and Indonesian and Japanese metalworking, I came across Alistair McCallum‘s gorgeous pieces.

Alistair has practiced the Japanese metalworking technique of Mokume Gane (wood grain metal) for over 30 years. During this period he has developed and explored different ways of producing pattern, it is this that distinguishes Alistair work from other practitioners. Due to the highly decorative surface pattern produced using this technique Alistair strongly believes that it is best used on simple forms where the relationship of pattern and forms are in harmony. via Contemporary Applied Arts
