Mokume-Gane Workshop

During my trip to jury the 3rd Annual World Championship Belt Buckle Competition I had the opportunity to teach a mokume-gane workshop for some of the advanced metals students at Montana State University (MSU).
A few pictures from the mokume-gane workshop at MSU.
I  also had the opportunity to visit my good friend Ben Isaiah and the Colorado State University metal arts department. 

A few pictures from my time visiting the metal arts department at CSU. 

Thank you to everyone who made my trip so enjoyable. 
I am looking forward to giving a few more workshops soon, so I will be talking more about that as things develop. 
I will be back with more to share soon.
Until next time,
Peace and Love
