  • Hard soldering

    Hard soldering (hagiawase) is a technique used join together different types of metal sheet. The technique makes it possible to create metalwork with striped or patchwork patterns. Once joined, the artisan may continue to shape the metal with a hammer.

  • 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.
