All of the work in this exhibition by second-year students at the VDA Telšiai Faculty Metal Arts and Jewellery Studies was created as course projects together with jewellers Remigija Vaitkutė and Beata Zdramytė, using the complicated metal machining technique Mokume gane. This technique appeared in Japan 300-400 years ago, and the word mokume – the eye of the wood – is used to emphasize the similarity to the structure of wood. Gane means metal. Together, the words mean metal wood texture. The varied pattern of metal plaques helps to further develop and adapt the idea of the work. The whole process requires very careful work, but the results are alluring in their versatility and creative expression.
