  • Metal overlay

    In metal overlay (nunome zōgan), a chisel is used to create patterns of fine crosshatching over which leaves of gold, silver, or lead may be affixed to create decorative surface details. Literally “cloth-pattern inlay,” nunome zōgan takes its name from the distinctive crosshatching pattern used to affix the metal leaf.
