Metal: Iron & Steel

From production to processing, Japan has developed a unique culture around metal. The sharpness and beauty of Japanese swords are forged by pushing the material to its limits. Metal is also essential to cookware, including pots, pans and kettles. Our guest this time is Nobuho Miya, a caster who is designing a new kind of traditional Nambu ironware.
