Copper Kettle
Maker: Masami Mizuno

Self taught metalware artist Mizuno Masami has been producing copper wares by hand since his early twenties. He produces his pots and pans using the process of "Raising" that allows the shaping of hollow forms from a flat sheet of metal by repeated hammering. The technique is slow and painstaking and the creation of one pot might require tens of thousand of hammer strokes to shape and fold the metal into its final finished form.

The kettle is unlined, pure copper and benefits from the disinfectant properties of copper which helps to kill microbes while giving the water a milder, improved taste.

The copper will begin to transform to deeper color with use and age.

Each kettle is made individually by hand so slight imperfections are to be expected and contribute to the uniqueness of each piece.
