This crow bottle opener is made by Tadahiro Baba, who is an ironware craftsman creating various motifs through his original viewpoint. Nambu ironware was originally developed about 900 years ago in Japan and was made more prominent by the Nambu clan, in Morioka City, in northern Japan, about 400 years ago. All of the required materials, including iron sand, river sand, clay, lacquer and charcoal were available locally. In their efforts to develop their area culturally and economically, they invited artisans from Kyoto - the capital of Japan at that time.
