We were thrilled to fine a new line in Takaoka, Japan called ‘Suzugami’ or ‘tin paper’, , as its name suggests, is thin like paper and totally malleable. By repeatedly hammering a rolled tin sheet, not only can it become patterned, but it gains a strength that has resistance to repeated bending. It is a product only metalwork artisans could conjure up.  Metal artisans from at Syouryu, that is.

Want to easily bend metal to make your own creation? That is the novelty of suzugami.  Then roll it out and start again. Once you start you will want to do it over and over again.
