About Timoku Rings
TIMOKU. Inspired by Ancient Japanese Technique
Developed by Edward Mirell a multi-layered titanium material, the wood grain metal.
The name TIMOKU is derived from titaniums atomic symbol of TI and the centuries old Japanese technique, Mokume Gane. Mokume Gane is an ancient Japanese metalworking technique which when translated, means "wood-grain metal". During the Samurai Era, Mokume Gane was used to create adornments on the handles of the Samurai's sword. Theses marks were considered to be symbols of status and wealth. Today the technique is used to create contemporary art and jewelry. The process involves layering thin sheets of metal and exposing them to extreme heat and pressure which causes the layers to fuse rather than melt. The end result is unique and distinctive layered pattern in the metal that mimics the grains on wood. It is a representation of the harmony of nature as embodied in wood while having the strength and polish of metal.
Each TIMOKU ring features unique patterns, like the banding of a tree. The patterned materials symbolize the joining of souls into a single integrated creation, far greater in strength than its components, yet preserving the essence of individuality. TIMOKU's secret, patented technique, the most significant change in 350 years, combines the wisdom of the ages with modern day technology.
