Traditional Hand Craft (Shizuoka Hikimono)

Hikimono is the technique used to make round objects and bowls from wooden material using spinning wheels and lathes.
With a rich history, the usage for wooden products such as tall basins and bowls has been time proven from the unearthing of artifacts from the Karako ruins of Nara Prefecture that date back to the Yayoi Period.

It is said that the roots of Shizuoka Hikimono dates back to the Edo(old Tokyo) Period when Precious wood quotient、 handed down the techniques to craftsman in Hakone.
After World War II, through the exporting of pepper mills, table legs, doorknobs etc., the quality of these regional products have been highly praised world wide.
Currently, due to machine made mass production becoming the norm, the production using Hikimono techniques has decreased.
SEE SEE takes pride in fusing together the technical (History) and design (Now) in order to create the NEXT that will hand down this tradition to the coming generation.


その歴史は古く、弥生時代の奈良県唐古遺跡出土の高杯や鉢などの木器には、すでにその使用が認められています。 <静岡挽物>は、江戸時代末期に、銘木商が箱根の挽物師から技術を伝承したのが、はじまりとされています。そして戦後、アメリカ向けに、胡椒挽(こしょうひき) やテーブルの脚、ドアノブ等を輸出をし、その技術の高さから産地として世界的に認知されました。現在、機会による大量生産が主流のなり、手挽き技術による生産は減少しつつあります。 SEE SEEは、この伝統を後世に伝えるために、技術的な<歴史>に、意匠的<今>を融合させて、<NEXT>を創造していきます。
