Each strike of the artisan's hammer
imbues the cold metal with life.
The piece that is created is made to be the same,
but remains unique in its own way.
Eventually it will find a home
far from where it was made but
continue to grow more unique by the
touch of the hands that use it.
We hammer today because of
those who have come before us,
and the life we create is shaped
by the knowledge passed down
through the generations.
But that life is left incomplete without
nurturing hands to guide it into the future.
Your time begins here.
It is our sincerest hope that,
upon taking our Gyokusendo copperware into your hands and when you use it every day thereafter,
you are able to envision its shining form one hundred years into the future.
