Kimiaki Kageyama one of the most important Japanese Master Goldsmiths will introduce Japanese copper alloys and their coloring. In Japan, coloring metals has been experimented since 4th~5th century. Direct coloring began around the end of the Heian period (794-1185) but it is during the Muromachi period (1330-1568) that the development of various kinds of copper alloys suitable for coloring flourished.
The alloys will be produced in traditional way and students can select different alloys to develop their personal concepts. Special technical issues and tools will be introduced during various stages of the working process. Special focus will be set on finishings, as polishing with particular charcoals and coloring.
