Master-Apprentice Artist Award Program 

I am very pleased to announce that I have awarded a grant as one of the 2021 Master-Apprentice Artist award program from Southwest Folklife Alliance in Tucson, AZ.

From the website: Momoko Okada is a Tucson-based metalsmith originally from Hokkaido, Japan. After pursuing art degrees abroad, Momoko reconnected with tradition by apprenticing with the last kashima-style Nunome master, Master Kashima, in 2004. Since then, she’s worked to spread the use of traditional Japanese metalsmithing techniques worldwide. She will work with Melanie Nelson to share Kaga and Nunome inlays, raising techniques, and design tools.

Shipping info - Since March 2021, Japan Postal Service has started international air shipments with weight limitations. It is still challenging to ship metal tools and materials from Japan, however,  Momokoya is now stocking up some of the products that was "out of stock".  Due to this postal service change, there are some price changes on most of our products.  I appreciate your understanding. Please continue to make sure to see the √ mark next to the products name. √ mark indicates that the products are in stock in the U.S. office and available to ship within the U.S.   

 Thank you for your continued support.
