Artist behind the metallography

Marshal Clark is a metallurgical engineer who became fascinated with the structure and artistry found within iron meteorites and creating photographic prints of these structures. While the metallic structures of meteorites are similar to those of metals formed on earth, they also differ. Unlike metals formed on earth, which solidify and cool within minutes or hours,  meteoric metal cooled at a rate of a few degrees per 100,000 years producing unique structures that  have remained relatively unchanged for more than 4.5 Billion years.


Within this site I want to share the beauty and the artistry I have found in iron meteorites as well as to provide a resource to begin your journey of discovery.
