Luxurious Teaware Design Inspired by Ferrari

One of the world’s most complex teaware techniques, Tsuiki craftsmanship (‘tsuikidoki’ in Japanese) has its roots among the famous rice fields of Niigata, in the town of Tsubame. Claimed to be the only ones in the world who know and use these techniques with such a perfection, teaware and sake-ware craftshop Gyokusendo reveals the key behind its copperware success.

Patience is all it requires during the twenty to thirty years learning process to become a tsuikidoki craftsman. Such a profession doesn’t cost only time but also big bucks. Trying to give a more modern look to the  two hundred year-old technique of hand-hammering copper sheets, Gyokusendo saw the designer extraordinaire Ken Okuyama, a wristwatches lover, especially those from TAG Heuer, as a great partner.

Ken Okuyama and his creations

The 51-year-old made a name for himself as the Pininfarina design director behind the Ferrari Enzo, Maserati Quattroporte, and Maserati Birdcage concept. Since leaving the Italian styling powerhouse in 2006, Okuyama has expanded his design focus to encompass everything from iron tea pots to eyewear, furniture to massage chairs, motorcycles to sports cars, buildings to robots and even the next-generation Shinkansen bullet train.

Now, his drawings had to become reality in the hands of the artisans at Gyokusendo who were met with the challenge of turning copper sheets into three dimensional teapot. Experienced smiths master this fine art and are able to strike the copper sheet just enough, which is crucial since it’s difficult to make the copper contract later on.

Gyokusendo’s copperware of a wide variety of colors and shades is unique. The surface oxidization adds a nice patina to the artwork when tin and potassium sulfide are fused onto the surface of the copper.

You may wonder why copper is so special in this art. Well, copper has antibacterial properties, and it purifies the water, meaning that the copper ions mellow the flavor of the tea and sake. So over the time it becomes even more lustrous, and the flavor becomes more full and rich: copper turns ordinary water into ‘good water’, to mellow tea, and mellow sake.

Shanghai Metal Corporation offers a wide range of metals such as copper, widely used in architectural artifacts such as Gyokusendo’s teaware and sake-ware. To find out more, please visit our Website or send your inquiry here.

The Best Steel For The Best Dish!

An interesting wok test compares the carbon steel wok again the stainless steel wok. There is a lot of debate over these two compositions of woks even if they look kite similar there are some important difference with their temperature reaction.

image

Most people prefer the carbon steel wok over the stainless steel wok because it has the most regular heat dispersion. This is not the case with stainless steel overheated and these hot spots can totally ruin a cooking and reduces long-term quality cooking. On the other hand, the carbon steel has good resistance to high temperatures and retains heat much longer than stainless steel woks for future use.

image

The only downside is that carbon steel requires slightly more maintenance to eliminate the appearance of rusting. We just needs to dry well and rub with 2 or 3 drops of oil to prevent any risk of rust.

image

To have a good wok stainless steel we have to choose the best quality of stainless steel and the final price may be higher than the carbon steel wok.  Overall, the carbon steel wok is a better choice for short and long term use.

Shanghai Metal Corporation offers a large selection of carbon steel with the highest quality standard and an affordable pricing. To find out more, please visit our Website or send your inquiry here.

The Naked Beer That Will Make Your Mouth Water

Surely a package design tells us more than we could imagine. As the Chinese saying goes “You eat first with your eyes, then your nose, then your mouth”. In the beverage label design this is not different. Wine bottle is usually what gets more attention when it comes to label design, leaving popular small run craft beers behind.

But with US craft breweries embracing aluminum cans the fate of beer cans have changed dramatically. Aluminum is the perfect raw material since it provides a cheap, impact-resistant, recyclable packaging. Protection against light which could spoil the very carefully selected aroma of the beer can be minimized by using aluminum cans. Beverage poisoning when in contact with aluminum is also avoided by a water-based polymer coating process.

As a result of the trend for home breweries and craft beers we have sees an explosion of inventive, creative and original label designs. Following the wave of beer can designs, Russia-based designer Timur Salikhov takes the beer packaging to the next level by introducing the Naked Premium Beer. The idea behind the Naked Premium Beer is to show the beer on the inside of a can. He puts “sweat marks” on the cans, meant to instantly quench thirst in the viewer.

The Naked Premium Beer is only one out of many examples of clever merchandising strategy. The Naked Premium Beer canister is not a de facto transparent can that has nothing to hide and everything to boast with its appealing cold, delicious and perfect foamy beer. The artist uses printing and visual effect to give a convincing picture of what is inside the Naked Premium Beer. “There are many beer cans with different design. And there is only one that shows what really is inside. Why hide what good beer looks like?”, says Salikhov. So when one looks carefully at the beer can he/she will then realize they have been tricked. But too late unfortunately, after having your mouth water already.

Other less tricky are the top 10 coolest-looking beer cans from the most artisanal craft breweries to the brewing giants of MillerCoors featured on Thrillist by CraftCans.com guru and Canned! US author Russ Phillips.

What do a 3 Star Michelin Restaurant and a local eater have in common?

What do a 3 Star Michelin Restaurant and a local eater have in common?

Answer-they both use stainless steel in their kitchen, in one shape or another. The world of professional cooking is a vigorous and every so changing and demanding world. From preparing the perfect cocktail, to pleasing the customer with small works of art, and of course to serving them a most memorable dessert. All and many more of these examples would not be possible and hygienic without the participation of Stainless steel.

image

Let’s view this idea as if you just had a long day at work, and just want to sit down and enjoy a great diner with no worries. You begin with a cocktail, a cold vodka martini which was possible by the stainless steel ice box, and the stainless steel shakers which chilled your cocktail at a rapid speed without diluting it. Before, this same cocktail would have been stirred, diluted, and not reach the ice cold feeling you are enjoying today.

image

Dinner has arrived! It is a perfectly poached Salmon with seared tomatoes and reduced vinegar glaze on top. A small work of art, and yet again this perfectly balanced dish would not have been possible without the assistance of stainless steel appliances. Since stainless steel holds on to temperature very well, and it is not affected by acids such as tomatoes, or vinegar; this dish you are taking pictures of and twitting about, could not have been possible without the help of stainless steel pots and pans.

image

Finally dessert; a curious pairing of frozen ice creams sitting on top of a variety of fried fruit, both curious and intricate. Again, difficult without the help of stainless steel appliances such as: the deep fryer and ice cream maker. Your experience has come to an end, and you leave with a smile on your face. You leave thanking everyone, except one silent participant, but it is ok, those pots and pans will be waiting for you for many years come.

image

The participation of Stainless steel is one who has helped raise the level of artistry in the world of professional kitchens, as well as in your kitchen at home. As Stainless Steel Industry Professional, Shanghai Metal Corporation takes pride in the manufacturing of those products which are used in our customer’s daily life such as stainless steel cutlery, kitchen sinks and a countless variety of stainless steel products, which our company manufactures and supplies at the highest quality and most affordable price.
