Metalworking Chasing metal  / Takejiro Hasegawa (1950 ~)

Takejiro Museum 2016


Welcome to Takejiro Museum 2016

Ten years ago, the "Takejiro Museum" was held in 2006, when there was still feel art zero  in the skylark of Hachiko.

Many people, including myself, were thrilled with the expectation and excitement of looking into the treasure chest.

I remember feeling that kind of feeling.

This time, we will introduce a series of antiques collected by Mr. Takejiro as tea utensils, and carefully selected items from valuable works produced in the past, focusing on accessories such as excavated items with more than 50 items. The "Takejiro Museum" is filled with the playfulness and skill of Mr. Takejiro Hasegawa, which attracts both amateurs and experts, changes places, and does not change over time. Please enjoy yourself.
