GYOKUSENDO COPPER POTS. Beauty in utility since 1816.

This Hand hammered copperware has been produced in Tsubame City of the Nigata prefecture, an awesome sake making region of Japan. Their craftsmanship and techniques have been developing over the last seven generations. These one made by Norio Tamagawa

“Tsuikidoki” is a 200-year-old technique of pounding flat copper sheets into three dimensional stuff, creating fine art as functional items. The Gyokusendo workshop has been designated a tangible cultural property by the government of Japan.

The Artisans use an array of different sized hammers and toriguchi to create the pattern and infuse the surface with tin. The sexy coloring comes from soaking in natural liquids that bring out the wicked colors and smooth patina. We think that the craftsmen at Gyokusendo have mastered these techniques. A typical piece can take a week or more to create and becoming an expert of Tsuikidoki can take upwards of 20 years

This is world-class craftsmanship
