Make better castings more efficiently

Nosaku is a cast metal manufacturer that carries on the tradition of Takaoka copperware.
In Takaoka copperware, the prototype maker molds the original model for the statue, which is then replaced by a mold made of sand.

The molten copper is then poured into the mold,
After removing the mold, the product is polished, colored, and engraved (carved and inlaid), and finally finished. 

Each process is a division of labor, and all require exceptional skill.Nosaku is committed to researching new materials and technologies and developing new products while inheriting these traditional casting techniques.

Nosaku uses a variety of casting methods and processing techniques to maximize the characteristics of materials

We will continue to expand the possibilities of castings.

Unlike other casting methods, mold sand is mixed with a small amount of water and clay and pressed into a mold.

It is called the "raw-mold casting method" because the molds are not fired or treated with chemicals before casting.

Nosaku produces many products using this technique, which has long been used in the manufacture of Takaoka copperware.

Because casting sand is only pressed together, it is brittle and easily crumbles, requiring skilled craftsmanship.

Another characteristic of the raw-mold casting method is that each casting has a different appearance depending on the number of sand particles, temperature differences, and other conditions.

Because of this, Nosaku's products may show some grazes or scratches during the manufacturing process,

This is the quality of our products by hand.

Precautions for use and maintenance

In case of yarns or stains, use a neutral detergent and scrub with a sponge or toothbrush.

If it is difficult to remove, leave it in hot water and scrub in the same manner.

Wipe with a soft cloth after use.

Do not use hard scrubbers or metal polishers as they will scratch the surface.



Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc.

It has been in use since around 1000 B.C. and was used as currency in the Roman Empire.

In Japan, brassware imported from China during the Nara period (710-794) is housed in the Shosoin Repository.

Today, the most familiar example is the 5-yen coin, and it is also loved as a material for small articles, interior decorations, architectural hardware, Buddhist ritual utensils, and musical instruments.

Nosaku's wind chimes, sorori, and candlesticks are also made of brass.

Each piece is handcrafted by craftsmen using the same casting techniques developed for orin and gusoku.

Brass products have a variety of expressions depending on the finish.

Please enjoy these tasteful products filled with Nosaku's skill and spirit.
