Gold leaf craftsman "Norifumi Fujisawa"

Born in Kyoto City, he graduated from the Kyoto Traditional Crafts College of Butsugu (Buddhist altar) gold leaf stamping course in 1998, and studied under Masaharu Okamoto, a traditional craftsman and a contemporary master gold leaf stamping artist.
He was involved in gold leaf processing for shrines and temples throughout Japan.
He later became independent as "Kyo Kinpaku Oshi Tokowaka" (Kyoto Gold Leaf Pressing Tokowaka) and obtained the title of "Certified Craftsman of Kyoto" approved by the Governor of Kyoto Prefecture in 2015.

In recent years, he has been actively expanding the scope of his activities by managing projects that fuse traditional gold leaf techniques with contemporary art and other genres, holding gold leaf workshops and solo exhibitions in France, Asia, and other regions, and actively communicating the appeal of gold leaf stamping both domestically and internationally.

This product named it "Dazzling Go stones "煌 KIRAMEKI"" because of the pattern of each piece, which is made by hand with great care and each piece shows a different expression.

  • Product : Gold and platinum leaf finish Dazzling Go stones size 34 "煌 KIRAMEKI" by Gold leaf craftsman Mr. Norifumi Fujisawa
    Quality : The highest quality with almost no scratches that has cleared strict selection standards.
    Grade (striped pattern) : The spacing between the stripes is a little coarser than "Snow grade", which is about 70% or less of the total.
    Thickness : size 34 : White Go stones/9.5 ㎜, Black Go stones/9.8 ㎜
    Diameter : White Go stones/21.9㎜, Black Go stones/22.2㎜
    *Our black Go stones are 0.3 mm large thicker and 0.3 mm large diameter than the same size of white Go stones.
    The reason is that white is an expanded color, so when you see white Go stones and black Go stones of the same diameter and thickness with the human eye, the black Go stones look a little smaller.
    So we adjusted them so that they look the same size.
