Gyokusendo Hand Hammered Copper Tea Canister
Hand-hammered copper canister by Gyokusendo.
Completely unwelded and traditionally joined tea canister with an outer and inner lid and are lined with tin/silver to preserve the taste and freshness of tea. The precision of the joining is absolutely incredible and pictures cannot do it justice! We prefer these over many other copper producers for the complete attention to craftsmanship. Each piece takes many steps to make and is never left unfinished. Each mark is a single hammer strike!
The colour of GYOKUSENDO's TSUIKI (Hand-Hammered metal craft) copper wares will gradually become mellow with increasing depth and gloss by rubbing them with a dry cloth with using them in everyday life.
GYOKUSENDO's craftsmen not only manufacture a copper wares but also make a piece of raw copper as if it was a breathing or living object. You may feel the excellence of GYOKUSENDO's TSUIKI hand-hammered copper-wares.
We hope GYOKUSENDO TSUIKI" copper-ware will enrich you by its beautiful textures and quality.
