Seigado Red Copper Single-Flower Vase

JPY ¥37,200
A graceful single-flower vase made of copper with red color. This is a product of Seigado, the metalwork studio in Nigata prefecture.

After melting copper into a sheet form, it is hammered into shape using the hammering technique called "Tsuiki", making the piece seamless.

This flower vase looks beautiful whether you put tall flowers in it or just a single small flower. Copper has a sterilizing effect, so the water is resistant to decay and the flowers last longer.

When copper is heated to a high temperature and then cooled rapidly the color turns to red like this. Each piece has a slightly different color such as varies deep red, bright red, or golden because the coloring varies depending on the weather.

Seigado has a workshop at the foot of Mt. Yahiko in Niigata Prefecture, where high quality copper was discovered about 300 years ago and "Tsuiki'', the technique of hammering copperware has developed since then.

"Tsuiki'' is a metalworking technique that is derived from the words 'hammer' and 'raise', so this process literally means hammering and embossing copperware products. The traces of the hammering, the process of making are left as beautiful patterns on the products.

About METALWORKS

In Japan, gold, silver, copper, tin, and iron are called "Gokin (five metals)" and have been used as materials for metalworking since ancient times. Each metal has a different luster, workability, strength, thermal conductivity, heat retention, moisture resistance, corrosion resistance, etc., and techniques to utilize these characteristics have developed in various regions.From daily necessities such as pots, kettles, and accessories to works of art that represent the times such as tea ceremony utensils, Japanese swords, and Buddhist bells, a wide variety of metalwork has been produced in each era.
