Base Metal Clay - Inlay

Inlay definition from Wikipedia:  Inlay is a decorative technique of inserting pieces of contrasting, often coloured materials into depressions in a base object to form patterns or pictures that normally are flush with the matrix

This is a sample that I made for Hadar’s book in 2009. It shows the copper inlaid into the bronze clay
