We can find appearance of auspicious omen of traditional techniques of Osaka Ranma in holy shrines in Izumi (Osaka prefecture) and Shitennouzi(osaka city) which were built in the early seventeenth century.
Although it is considered that was made for the purpose of temples lighting,
Later, magnificent sculpture art has become used for aristocratic residences, and since Edo period this has incorporated into public housing as well.
Since the wood carver is originally in the wake of the shrine carpenter, it was limited use such as buddhist temple and study room in the upper class residence. Therefore to propagate from Kyoto to Osaka were parallel to the spread of residential use. It is assumed that the location was blessed since Osaka was the distribution center of timber, and there were many wealthy merchant and the lands of mass consumption around Sakai area were to refrain.
Traditional crafts which was born and raised in people’s city Osaka with a history of over three hundred years.
There are noble and elegant, blended in everyday’s life as a friendly Ranma, technical excellence, futures of elegance by using precious Japanese wood in appropriate way(it is material, the beauty of bark) has received high recommendation.
Art work which adopted to modern living are blending of history and new design and it makes spacious luxury living space.
Please enjoy excellent technic.
