Until the Southern Ironware is formed
1. Design decision First we will write design ideas into sketchbooks and so on. Freehand's curve creates unique warmth and presence that is difficult to express on computers.
2. Prototyping Based on the design drawing, we will manufacture the prototype model of the product with plaster. Considering the nature of the material and various restrictions on the manufacturing, we finish it by hand. The quality of this prototype model can greatly affect the finish of subsequent products. One designer is doing design and prototype production at Ichinodo.
3. Make a mold Once the mold produced based on the prototype model is completed, it becomes possible to mass-produce the mold. The photograph is where a craftsman is molding a sand mold which becomes a female mold by applying pressure with sand (quartz sand) with a mold.
4. Pour iron It is work to pour iron dissolved in about 1500 ° C into the mold. As the iron flows evenly throughout the mold, we will adjust the speed and quantity to pour in while adjusting it.
5. Sand dropping Drop the mold sand adhering to the iron bottle taken out from the mold by the method called shot blasting. Ironware before coloring is like this in this way. (The picture is after sand dropping)
6. Rough finish Before the painting process carefully scrape off the protrusions and edges etc on the mold part line etc with a grinder.
7. Finishing I will paint on the outer surface and finish it through the process of wiping extra color → wiping clean.
8. Completion Check carefully one by one, finished by attaching a tea strainer and a handle.
