I’m curious about what the assignment was.  As a teacher I am curious to understand you teacher’s input.

I'm curious as to how you got such a smooth and even blade slot in a knap-able material. What material is it and how did you do that?

Looks like copper to me and so probably a "made to look knapped" instead of cat scratches or plain. 

Ever thought of doing a reticulated silver one?

Lou : Chances are she said it because it is a Art Class and she feels doing your own thing instead of traditional Designs.....that sort of thing....and the assignment was sweat soldering....thats what I didnt understand just a piece that was sweat soldered together, to me doing a traditional habaki design more than fit the bill..but its her show so.....

Sfeile : It is Copper and it is a grinding technique. And to get it smooth after LOTS AND LOTS of hand sanding....I still have more to do tonight with the 1200 grit paper before turn in, and patience....

Thomas : depends on what you mean by reticulated....do you have an example? And yes I would love to do a silver one if I had the money for the silver stock...

Search on "reticulated silver"    It's sort of a depletion gilding type of thing; but leaves very interesting textures on sterling.

Interesting, the copper to silver ratio is almost like Sibuichi which would make it even more interesting when you pantina it black.....

I know that, You know that, most people into it know that, but trying to explain it to people who know nothing about it.....

You shouldn’t tell your art teacher that all art is derivative!

That's EXACTLY the kind of thing to tell art teachers. It really gets them going. Just not if they're YOUR art teacher.

It was a nice iPad typo!  I intended to type “should”...the stupid iPad assumed I meant otherwise and added it without my noticing.
