Custom Japanese Calligraphy
Welcome To Takase Studios
Master Takase's brand of Traditional Japanese Calligraphy has been described as refined and cultured and she has been praised not only for her beautiful art but also for her approachability, courtesy, and professionalism. We use only the finest handmade Japanese papers from Kochi and the highest quality scrolls from Nara and all designs and calligraphy is personally created by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase.
To create the art we use a process that is both fun and informative. After getting your initial ideas Master Takase then creates hand-brushed samples which we show you along with a careful explanation of the translation and and the design. We then get your feedback and make changes in a new design set and we continue in this fashion until the design is exactly the way you want it. This normally takes two or three sets. Master Takase then creates the art based on this final design. In each case we give detailed information about the design along with independent references so that you are completely satisfied with not only the art but also with the translation and meaning.
We give individual attention and in all cases you will be working directly with Master Takase to create an original and personal work of art that is just for you. So if you are looking for an original and personal gift we would love to work with you. And if you have any questions please contact us as we would be happy to discuss your ideas and answer your questions.
