Nagiso Rokuro Craftsmanship
Yamaichi Ogura Turnery
Rokuro craftsmanship is a traditional technique which entails sawing down a thick plank or log with a plane and cutting it into shape while rotating it on a rokuro (potter’s wheel).
The craftsmen of rokuro craftsmanship are called “kijishi (wood grain masters).” The wooden products made by kijishi are known for their experience and understanding of the Hinoki grain.
For bigger size productions, we are able to customize the project.
