Mokume Gane Class with Wayne Werner

Wayne Werner Three bracelets made with Mokume Gane technique

Experience the beauty of working with “Mokume Gane,” a Japanese metalsmithing technique that literally translates into “eye of the wood”. This process manipulates multi-layered billets of differently colored metals by punching and grinding to produce amazing patterns and textures that resemble wood, smoke, and sedimentary layers. Wayne Werner is a third generation metal smith from Baltimore and has made his living as a maker for over 30 years. He has traveled around the world to learn with metal workers from Italy and Egypt to Java and Bali.
