“This series portrays an imaginary journey through the exotic jungles of the world. Capturing magical moments, discovering the beauty of iridescent colors in nature, shining through the dark interior of the lush jungle.

“I achieve these lustrous colors by using the chromatic range of anodized titanium often embellishing surfaces with semi-transparent lacquers applied to highly polished silver.”

- Jose Marin

Jose Marin is a talented self-taught metalsmith from Spain; he chooses to work in titanium, the element discovered in Cornwall, England and named after the Titans of Greek mythology. He incorporates precious and semi-precious stones set in an element that is extremely difficult to work with. Marin is intrigued with the fact that titanium is found in almost all living things: water, soils and rocks.
