400 years of skill and sole, it breathes life into copper
Located on the Japan Sea side, Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture.
The origin of Takaoka Copperware dates back to about 400 years ago.
Takaoka Copperware was evolved and developed under the generous patronage of the Kaga Clan. The casting of Buddhist alter fittings become very popular by the mid-Edo period (1603 to 1868) and were exhibited in the world expositions from Meiji (1868 to 1912) to early Showa period.
In 1975, Takaoka Copperware has received the first traditional crafts producer of Japan as a major producer of copper casting and its tradition, skills and history have been passed down until today.
1. Prototype Production
The prototype artist creates a prototype with clay. Then, it was transferred to plaster for casting to create a plaster prototype.
After dissolving copper in a crucible, it is poured into a mold. Once becoming a solidified alloy, the mold is disjointed.
3. Finishing and polishing
Using a copper file and a graver, an artist carefully shapes and finishes by hand to reproduce the original.
Coloring serves as a corrosion prevention and makeup. There are some traditional colorings and techniques such as "Ohaguro (tooth blacking)", "Ibushi (smoke)" and "Sei-do-iro (bronze)"
Depending on the design, chasing and/or inlaid on the surface may be applied.
