Ian Ferguson
Australian artist Ferguson creates exceptional Mokumé Gane vessels - a relatively rare 300 year old Japanese technique.

Mokumé Gane is a style of decorative metalwork originating from late 17th century Japan . Ferguson began a systematic study of the technique whilst at the Rroyal College of Art originally out of a quest for a colour scheme and pattern to express an idea. The range of metal combinations and patterns is now so large that each work is unique.
