Welcome to Takase Studios featuring the art of Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase. Whether you are looking for art for your home, office, dojo or art for a unique wedding or anniversary gift we would love to work with you to create this treasure.

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. 

Master Takase also does Custom Japanese Calligraphy for Graphic Design for commercial and professional use and has an impressive resume including movie titles, book covers and illustrations, CD covers, advertising and product packaging. A few years ago she even did the calligraphy for TV Guide's Emmy Awards After Party and was featured on NBC's Extra!
