Kamasada Casting Workshop originated in Morioka during the Meiji era (1868-1912). Many of their works feature ancient Japanese motifs, but some also showcase contemporary designs. The process of creating Nambu Ironware remains largely unchanged since the Momoyama period, dating back about 400 years (1568-1600). Lately, the sleek and modern aesthetics of Nambu Ironware and its impressive functionality have been gaining renewed interest.
