Meet the Artisan
Our Bronze Casting Partners from Takaoka
Takaoka has been the heart of the Japanese bronze casting industry since the 16th century. The city flourished and built its reputation as the center of the copper industry in Japan.
In 1916, this factory was founded to manufacture Buddhist ritual objects, Japanese tea sets and vases made of brass and bronze. These master metal artists now create unique objects for the home using ancient methods that have remained virtually unchanged. The complex and lengthy process to create each piece has remained virtually unchanged for centuries. Our brassware objects have been handcrafted with a solid weightiness and warmth that can only be achieved through expert craftsmanship.
