Fish tsuba by Marcus Chambers


This is still an ‘unfinished’ piece but boy does this already look spectacular !


So here is an update from the bench…
Finally have all the inlay done and just a few minor details to finish up while I work on covering a few practice plates with the texture that will be the ground. The MOP eye is not yet permanently fixed as it would not survive the patina process.

I just placed it in for the shot to get an idea of the finished piece. I will say the fishing line was the biggest challenge of the whole piece!!! Raised wire .030 mm thick in fine gold…just a bit nerve racking!
