A famous copperware workshop filled with the sound of hammers
EST 1816. Gyokusendo has been producing copperware for over 200 years. The inheritors of a traditional hand-hammering technique that is an official Intangible Cultural Property, Gyokusendo manufactures a wide variety of copper vessels, including tea implements, sakeware, and flower vases. Hand-hammered from a single sheet of copper, each vessel shapes itself to the user, developing a new glow with age.
