Jelly roll mokume gane

Geoffrey mokume gane

Polymer mokume gane has been around for so long that it can become, well, boring. But I couldn’t take my eyes off Rebecca Geoffrey’s latest take on the technique. Her polymer billet is made from layers of Skinner blend jelly rolls laid side by side and flattened.

Look at this picture to get the idea. These pictures may have you heading to your studio to figure out how it’s done. More pix here.

What looks like a cookie cutter in the second picture is actually Rebecca’s handmade silver bezel (and the round tube is the bail). It adds up to a stunning mix of media.

      You’re right, Cynthia! I’ve seen Rebecca’s photos bouncing around on Pinterest and this is one mokume gane technique to get excited about. Makes ME want to roll up some clay and pull out the stamps and texture sheets!

                Stunning! But it’s more than the technique, it’s her color sense and the textures she uses… Really lovely!

                  Oh my! I can’t imagine what *I* would do with something like that (other than look at it because it’s so pretty)–I make buttons, which aren’t patterned. 😀 But this is awfully neat. Amazing what someone can turn out from one little block of clay!
