Designer: Makoto Hirose
"Hirose fell in love with southern ironware, going so far as to move from Tokyo to Iwate. He said he was mesmerized by the monochrome beauty of the iron, polished and honed with the utmost efficiency. His creative motto is to design products with warmth that will be a perfect fit for any kitchen or living room."

"Nambu cast ironware is produced in Morioka City and Mizusawa, Oshu City. In 1975, it was designated as a traditional craftwork. “Nambu” refers to the Nambu clan, who built Morioka Castle about 400 years ago. The Nambu lords made numerous efforts towards the cultural development of their fief, inviting artisans from Kyoto and promoting the tea ceremony. As a result, the production of cast ironware for the tea ceremony began to develop in the area, with all the necessary materials readily available locally: iron sand, river sand, clay, lacquer, charcoal, etc. The cast ironware of Mizusawa was originally developed about 900 years ago, by the Fujiwara clan who developed the Golden Culture."
