Can do | Nousaku

Nosaku started manufacturing castings in 1916. At the beginning of its establishment, it mainly produced Buddhist utensils, tea sets, and vases. Around 1965, it was possible to produce a vase with a modern design, which was very popular. By 1985, the current president, Katsuji Nosaku, reformed and developed a series of new products based on years of experience and technology in casting. Later, the exhibition "Ring‧Lin‧Rin" held by "Nozuku" in Harajuku, Tokyo in 2001 attracted much attention, and established its image of contemporary and fashionable tinware products.

Casting Technology

To make Takaoka Copperware, you need to make a model first.
A mold is then made according to the shape of the model, and molten metal is poured into the mold. Finally, after casting, welding, grinding, gold carving and coloring and other decorations, it's done.

Every technique in the process requires superb professional skills, so the entire project is thoroughly divided, and full-time personnel are responsible for the implementation.
