My Orchid Tsuba

Here it is, I completed it shortly before I left for Japan at the end of October. I think the influence of Kano Natsuo is very clear but I think my treatment of the ground is becoming more my own intuitive process now. I've been quite unconventional in the placement of the leaves and flowers on the back but it didn't raise any comment or negative critique so I imagine it worked.


The flowers are inlaid in a pale gold alloy I made up and enabled me to develop something of an oxide/patina layer to help create a shaded and modulated tone. It was really important to me to get away from the shiny appearance of gold and to use it purely for the colour I wanted to show.
You can follow most of the creation of this piece on the iron brush forum, here's a link to that thread

It seems different countries, different cultures, we really can decide things in the same understanding of the difference!
