How Is Mokume Made?

True mokume gane is laminated together through the process of high heat and high pressure, where the layers are fused together. To start, sheets of precious metal in different colors are stacked together, like a stack of paper, in an extremely clean and laboratory like environment.

Then, the "billet" is placed, under extreme compression, in a kiln, in near-melt temperatures. The molecules have a grand time jumping around, and they intermingle in-between the layers. In between every layer, an extremely thin third layer is formed, which is the eutectic bond between layers.

 

How Is The Wood-Grain Look Created?

The resulting billet is then rolled out, and forged, formed, twisted or ground down.
