Minori Nishikata, who had been trained as a metal carver in Tsubame City, founded SEIGADO in 1945, shortly after the war. Using traditional techniques such as gold forging and hammering to handcraft bronzeware – also known in Japan and overseas as “hammered copperware” – which means that various types of hammers and metals are used to hammer and compress metals to make products. Because the process of continuous tapping will make the metal hard, after each hardening, an annealing process is required to soften the metal again, and the process is repeated until the desired shape is achieved, requiring extremely demanding production skills and depth of experience. SEIGADO is also skilled at producing silver series and tin products that are the perfect partners with Japanese sake.
