Futagami is located in Toyama – Takaoka City, a city known for its brass statues. it is one of the oldest Brass casting companies in Japan. Masanori Oji joined a workshop at Futagami to learn more about the process of casting brass after he had the idea to design a brass bottle opener. Upon completion of the workshop Masanori proposed to design a line of living wares for Futagami. The collection won an award from “Interior Lifestyle Tokyo” later that year.
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. Masanori Oji’s brass products are produced using the “sand cast” technique, a raw form of casting that leaves a unique sand-like texture on the surface. Some of the products are then polished or hammered depending on the desired texture.
