The artist imbues his soul into the lifeless metal Ğ and it is no longer lifeless.
Japanese metal craft originates in the creation of ritual utensils during prehistoric times. It further developed along with the making of swords and sword fittings, as well as the growth of armor production techniques. In all aspects of the creation process, for example forging, casting, and chasing (carving), Japanese metal craft has maintained a high level of quality and skillfulness.
During the latter part of the Edo-period (mid 19th century), Japanese metal craftwork crossed the seas and was displayed at expositions in Europe and the United States, receiving great praise from all circles. It is still a popular item at art auctions worldwide.
The artworks shown on this website speak of the Japanese craftsmen's skills that have been handed down through generations. Please browse through the pages and enjoy the infinite depth, strength and scents of tradition, as well as the unique and sophisticated workmanship by modern artists.
