Founded in 1816, Gyokusendo has been devoted to making Tsuiki copper-ware for over 200 years. Starting with manufacturing copper-ware for daily use such as pans and kettles, they gradually added elements of craftsmanship and have participated in international exhibitions since 1873. Since then, they have won numerous prizes at exhibitions both in and outside of Japan.
Their Tsuiki copper-ware is produced by hammering and beating a copper sheet to shape it into a vessel. Gyokusendo expresses various colours on the copper-ware using a special colouring technique. This technique was designated as an Intangible Cultural Property by The Agency for Cultural Affairs and Niigata Prefecture and Norio Tamagawa(Gyokusendo 5th Generation’s second son) was designated as a Living National Treasure in 2010.
