Utsushi – in search of Katsuhira’s tiger

I don’t remember exactly how I came across this video, I think one of my teachers showed it to us. In any case, I’ve been meaning to post it here for some time because it is fascinating. I have a lot of respect for artists who work with metals because I tried to take a class on it and couldn’t stand the stuff! I learned that scratching, scraping and forging just isn’t my thing. But when you watch this guy, he makes it look easy!

Also I would suggest probably watching these on youtube’s website so you can see it large and in high resolution.
