Nobuho Miya is a master forger of traditional cast iron, and works from his ironware studio, founded by his family in Iwate prefecture, Japan. His work has been exhibited worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY.
Each individually handcrafted design uses original Nambu techniques and reflects tradition and skill accrued through experience. It is understood that it takes at least 15 years to become a competent iron-maker and 40 years to achieve master craftsman status. The work of Nobuho Miya reflects both his ability as a craftsman and also as a designer. Production is limited to the output of the workshop.
