Arata Nagano

I use wazuku, which is Japanese iron from ancient times, and produce teakettles. By applying traditional technology such as horobiki*, the loam mold casting process or iron smelted in a furnace, I aim at the creation of works incorporating modern concepts. *A technique to make a mold by putting a mix of kneaded river sand and clay wash into a molding box, and pulling it around a wooden pattern.
