Established in the Meiji era, which lasted between 1868 and 1912, Kamasada is a renowned cast iron workshop based in the Iwate prefecture, Japan. Master craftsman and cast iron forger Nobuho Miya continues his family legacy, designing and making cast iron pots, utensils and home accessories for a new generation. While each object is made using traditional Nambu techniques, Kamasada’s collections stand out with their contemporary design. The products range from the classic cast iron teapot to animal-shaped bookends and paper weights. Nobuho Miya’s work has been exhibited around the world, including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.
