Shibuichi:  25% Silver : 75% Copper - Dark grey with a trace of gold - is the definition given by Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

I looked it up because I cannot remember all the japanese terms for their wonderful alloys. I have also looked into the processes of creating these alloys - and I have to admit that at 69 years of age - I simply had to come to terms with the fact, that sadly, I do not have the life-span left to me to research these alloys in my workshop.

This piece of work, your 'Dragon hairpin' is incredibly lovely. I adore your skill.

Please accept my sincere admiration for your work.

Seeing  your work is what has caused me to join the Deviant Art Website. I have so far today, submitted two rather poor digital photos of my Pastel Paintings.
However, I have a small workshop in which I am endeavouring to teach myself how to raise objects in silver, and continue my enamelling with the vessels I create.

I am 69 years old and still having fun!

Perhaps we could correspond occasionally, and I could ask you some questions about my difficulties in repousse work. I have managed to get some vintage chasing tools from America despite the high import duty. These steel punches are very expensive but I now have about a dozen basic shapes to work with.

Also Silversmith Stakes are essential to my raising operations, but the prices are outrageous - again I have made some progress by finding a fer suitable Panel Beating Dolly Shapes, and some Blacksmith Stakes that approximate the stake shapes that I need. So I am beginning to make real progress at last.

Working in metals without a tutor can be very disheartening at times, but I am enjoying the challenge, and I have found a few good pals in people from whom I have bought tools.

My first job on this Deviant Art site, is to copy and paste the images of your wonderful repousse' metalwork for my own closer study.

Thank you for the inspiration that you are providing for me, . . .  and for others Worldwide, . . . who are trying to work artistically with metals !

Yours Sincerely,

Dave (Quartzcrystalman)
