It's been a couple of years since I've tried my hand at nunome zogan with my own tools. Joyce and I took a great short class in higo zogan during our trip to Japan this summer; at that time we used all of the masters tools. Gave it another try yesterday with my own barnyard tools - lots of things wrong, but plenty to be happy about. Started out just messing with the chisel with the intent of practicing line spacing and depth. However, I couldn't resist trying to overlay some copper. This is completely unfinished; I seem to have misplaced my burnisher so things were left very raw. For those not familiar with this technique - this is pretty lousy. This is copper overlay on mild steel mounted for work in a bowl of German red pitch.
