OF NOTE

Akita gallery showcases alloy artist

Some 40 kin gin mokumegane (precious metal alloy) works are on display at the Shushinkan education facility in Yuri Honjo, Akita Prefecture, through May 10.

Akita-based artist Biko Hayashi has revived an art lost for 300 years in which gold, silver, copper and shakudo (an alloy of copper and gold) are fused into a thin plate, forming unpredictable patterns.

Shushinkan is a five-minute walk from the Honjo Station on the JR Uetsu Line, a 30-minute ride from Akita. For information, call 0184-22-1110.
