The Patina of Orii Russet
The simple elegance of the traditional, Japanese Ikebana, single-stem table vase takes on a new, contemporary twist with the signature patina color, Orii Russet, from Momentum Orii studio.
Momentum Orii studio, located in Takaoka City, a traditional stronghold of copper craftwork since 1611, was known for exclusively coloring Buddha statues and other wares. Now, third generation patina craft-artisan, and studio owner, Koji Orii, and his talented team of metal-coloring artisans, seek to invigorate the craft with new techniques and methods, while also relying on passed-down traditional Japanese metal-coloring (patinization) techniques as well. One such method involves the application of rice bran - a fermented paste used in Japan for making pickles. This application creates the unique, mottled and nebulous patterns on each object and sets Momentum Orii apart as the only studio in the world to be producing these unique colors and patterns on products for contemporary life.
