How about today, while I wind up the release of the latest issue of The Polymer Arts,  we turn to the thoughts and detailed process of Carol Simmons as she worked through some experimentation with mokume a couple years ago.

This beautiful metallic mokume is the result of Carol’s experimentation with arranging mokume strips in patterns as well as additional layers built from punched out shapes from the mokume sheet.


It’s a nice reminder that even something as intricate as mokume can be pushed just a little farther for new and interesting effects. Read about her process on Carol’s blog here.
