We are delighted to introduce a remarkable Tetsubin that diverges from the creations of Oitomi. This particular Tetsubin has been skillfully fashioned by Shingo Kikuchi (菊池真吾), a revered traditional craftsman affiliated with Shokado. His workshop is established in Oshu City, Iwate Prefecture, mirroring the geographical roots of our own establishment.
The distinction of a "traditional craftsman" is an official accolade granted by the Japanese government, attesting to the expertise and mastery of artisans who uphold advanced techniques and skills. Within the realm of Nambu Ironware, a select group of only a few dozen traditional craftsmen exist, and Shingo Kikuchi occupies a coveted place among them.
Nambu ironware owes its existence to two distinct methodologies: Nama-gata, which employs sand molds, and Yaki-gata, involving the crafting of molds through the baking of clay. This Tetsubin, a masterpiece created through the Yaki-gata approach, emerges as an exceedingly scarce creation due to the limited number of pieces that can be produced from a single mold. As a result, it stands as a truly exceptional piece in terms of rarity.
