Fred With the Boxes


This website shares my knowledge and experience in Japanese Metalwork. My daughter has put it together using photos taken by local photographer, Mrs Sweeney.

Over the last 5 years I have created 3 boxes using 3 different techniques. Traditional Mokume-gane, Shakudō and Shibuichi have been incorporated. To do so, I have researched and experimented to overcome many technical difficulties. Wikipedia and Spons Workshop receipts have been a great help. I hope that anyone interested in this topic will get in touch.

Note: This work is not commercially viable. Suiting those who are obsessive – wanting or choosing a challenge.
