About

The Mitsuro Process

Heather has studied the mitsuro technique for nine years, perfecting her recipe and learning to bring out the natural beauty of the material to form wearable art and jewelry. Mitsuro is a rare 1,300 year old Japanese blended wax technique that creates organic designs with beautiful striations.

Since it is not commercially available, the process begins by cooking specific ratios of materials together to create the mitsuro wax. After cooling, the wax is heated to body temperature and hand manipulated by pulling, twisting, and folding. During this process, delicate striations, called hikime, are created in the mitsuro wax to lend to the organic shapes and nature inspired designs that Heather Scott utilizes in her sculptural wearable art jewelry.

Accentuation of the striations and textures are created during the finishing process by patination and selective polishing after the pieces are cast into silver or gold. This technique adds a striking contrast in the fine contours of Heather’s works.
