A bit about Sano Hiroshi- Sano Hiroshi was born in Jushiyama, Aichi prefecture in 1930, and graduated the Nagoya Municipal School of Crafts in 1950. That year he joined the Ando Shippo Cloisonné studio. Three years later he would begin expanding his knowledge of metal craft under Sekiya Shiro while remaining employed by Ando, where he would remain until 1967. He became a member of the Kofukai in 1961 and would consistently exhibit there and be recipient of many awards. Shortly thereafter he began also to exhibit with the Nitten National Exhibition, garnering several awards and mentions there. In 1967 he established a center for the study of crafts and his art became ever more eccentric, delving deeply into form over purpose. A master in both metal craft and cloisonné, he would also be awarded at the Nihon Shinkogeiten (New Crafts Exhibition). He has been the subject of several documentaries in Japan (1978, 1983, 1988). For his contribution to the art world he was granted the Order of Cultural Merit from Aichi prefecture in 1982 with the note: While learning the techniques of metal engraving and forging, while observing the sense of modeling, he won the special prize of the metalwork department for the first time in this region at the 10th Nitten. He also served as a guide for the younger generation, sending young artists to the world. He has contributed to the promotion and improvement of the arts and culture of this prefecture by establishing traditional metalworking techniques in this region, and is expected to continue to play an active role in the future.

Circa 1960's.

 Comes with original signed wooden storage box.
