Nambu Ironware (called Nambu tekki in Japanese) is a form of metalwork produced in Morioka City and Oshu City in Iwate prefecture. It is a traditional craft that was first created in the middle of the Edo period (1603-1868). Nambu ironware is rust-resistant, long-lasting, well-insulated, and provides a uniform circulation of heat. The exterior of the kettle has a bumpy textured pattern called arare or hailstone which is often used in Nambu ironware to help increase the surface area of iron kettles. The iron kettles that are representative of Nambu ironware will vary individually because each artisan is free to create any arare pattern they like. Iron kettles are the most popular Nambu ironware item, but there are also Nambu ironware saucepans, wind chimes, and accessories.
