We are pleased to introduce this iron kettle produced by Ryo Murakami of Murasaki Nambu Ironware Studio, located in Oshu, Iwate. This iron kettle is crafted using the casting technique.
This piece incorporates a unique and innovative approach (a hedgehodg motif on lid handle!) while maintaining the classic and iconic Arare pattern, which is one of the most distinctive features of Nambu ironware.
Hedgehogs (HARINEZUMI) have become popular pets in Japan in recent years. The game Sonic the Hedgehog is famous, but there are actually no wild hedgehogs in Japan.
Ryo Murakami is a young artisan and is influenced by Japanese Kawaii culture and pop culture. The innovative idea of combining a hail pattern and hedgehogs is highly appreciated.
