Japanese Metalwork


Japanese metalwork abounds in countless forms, techniques and alloys. Throughout the centuries, Japanese metal craftsmen have imagined and created some of the finest metal artistry on earth.

The varied materials used include bronze, iron, copper, silver, gold and a mix of these known as Japanese shakudo. These have been crafted into remarkable pieces including Japanese tea and Buddhist items like kettles or tetsubin, ikebana vases, religious figures, koro incense burners, bells and lanterns, and hand mirrors.

Perhaps the most notable of all Japanese metal artistry is found in the area of Japanese sword and armor. Blades, tsuba, helmets, chest plates, abumi and sword and armor fittings have long been regarded as unsurpassed in beauty and quality throughout the world.
