Concept

I returned to the Town of KUROE, where I was borned, and opened a Blasksmith Studio.

In the sixth year, we had our own family home near the Studio.

The changing seasons, the air, the light and the sound that are there change the appearance, New days come every day. The dazzling touched my heart.

We who live there and the birds who come in the morning and evening.

Everything affects each other in various ways.

Only when "mixed".

Seeing, touching, empowering all of them, I keep striking iron every day.

What I made myself

In the place we envision.

Studio

Studio

HOUSEHOLD INDUSTRY is located along a national highway with heavy traffic. The building, which was originally a blacksmith, was renovated, and the first floor became a Studio and the second floor became a Shop.

Steel and tools are placed in the Studio. It's not a big Studio, but it's just the right size for us. Large works such as gates and objects, and small spoons are also made from this place.
