Naho Kamada

Born in 1982, Naho Kamada is a metalworker from Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan. She studied under metalworker Takejiro Hasegawa and became independent in 2008.

Inspired by antique tea utensils, old cups and other tools, Naho crafts beautiful cutlery and jewellery that are flowing and graceful. She pays particular attention to emphasising the clean lines and using her soft touch to create subtle marks across the surface.

Her goal is to work with simple design, making objects that people can use on a daily basis and enjoy for the rest of their lives.
