Here's my jewelry metalsmith. I work with different metals including gold, silver, titanium, steel, nickel, copper, brass, nickelsilver and old traditional japanese alloys such as shakudo and shibuichi.
Mokume-gane (木目金 Mokumegane) is a Japanese metalworking procedure which produces a mixed-metal laminate with distinctive layered patterns. Mokume-gane translates closely to "wood grain metal" or "wood eye metal" and describes the way metal takes on the appearance of natural wood grain.
Mokume-gane has been used to create many artistic objects. Though the technique was first developed to decorate swords, the art survives today mostly in the form of jewelry and hollowware.
Mokume-gane fuses several layers of differently coloured precious metals together to form a sandwich of alloys called a "billet." The billet is then manipulated in such a way that a pattern resembling wood grain emerges over its surface. Numerous ways of working the mokume metal create diverse pattens. Once the metal has been rolled into a sheet or bar, several techniques are used to produce a range of effects.
Timascus is corrosion resistant, non-magnetic, and lightweight. It has the beautiful, upscale look of steel damascus without any of the disadvantages of steel that can disappoint some knife makers and collectors. The timascus is made by placing these two different alloys of titanium into a metal box, filling the enclosure with inert gas and applying both heat and pressure to have the two alloys to forge laminated together. When coloring, the current formulation seems to show more contrast using heat rather than anodizing. All current safe coloring techniques can be applied to Timascus. Future alloy combinations will have different color profiles. Timascus is a beautiful fusion of old world decorative techniques and modern metal-smithing.
Some of my favourite virtual photos. I dont use Photoshop as i do like the imperfections. Bit like life, its not perfect and is full of imperfections.
But also being honest I haven't a diddly squat how to use Photoshop.
Setas Acuarelas is part of a larger project called La Gente de las Setas - Mushroom People - but more on that later. These are experiments in the movement of paint, the relationship between artist and medium, exploring texture and form. The basic shapes are generic mushroom shapes filled with me playing with paint; they are not representative images nor completely abstract but a combination of reality and fantasy.
i carv small figures of cherry wood. They are about 10-16cm high. Then i montage them on wooden gears, and build an electro mechanism, witch can make turn the figures around themselves. At least i will project colored light on the figures, so i can spot the moving colored shadows of them on the white wall behind.
Hope you will enjoy the show, here are some stands, and maybe later some gifs and a Video.

”Space is the greatest thing, as it contains all things”
Topological metalepsis (metonymy of metonymy) of Hegel
Hegel’s language, syntax, concepts and notions have topological nature. The topological is presented in Hegel both as mathema (in his philosophy of mathemats) and as rethorics. If topological nature of Hegel’s mathesis is presented within his fourfold of infinities (multiplicities) and Hegel’s four type of judgments, Hegel’s rethorics is bearing the four basic tropes of rhetoric: metaphor, metonymy, synecdoche, ironi as equally presented in his manifold (Mannigfaltigkeit) of infinities, quality and quantity, time and space.
In Hegel’s philosophical narratives and semiology, the emphasis is on the metonymy seen as ‘ metonymy of metonymy ’ or ‘metalepsis’, presented in ‘topological’ notion of Qualitative quantity (The Quality of quantity).
David G. Carlson , in his Hegel’s Theory of Measure, in particular in his discussion of Measure as a Series of Measure Relations ), states that “ Metonymy is the theme of this new section's tongue. Metonymy is the inability to name the thing directly, but only the context of the thing. In metonymy, if the entire context is described, the unnameable thing becomes a ghostly space the existence of which is simply inferred from context. ” ( David G. Carlson, 200 3 , Hegel’s Theory of Measure:47 )
Marshall Stone's famous dictum 'One Must Always Topologize'
Hallo friends, these are few examples for my geometrical painings with rennaissance like pigments and oli on wood. My special interessiert is on sacred geometry. These are few mandalas, that will energetize y our room. Hope your will like it!
