Fine Japanese Calligraphy
Welcome to Takase Studios
Japanese Scrolls, called kakemono, are true works of art often displayed in traditional Japanese settings such as in a dojo, as a centerpiece in a tokonoma, as part of the Japanese tea ceremony, or displayed with bonsai or suiseki. Throughout history, Japanese scrolls have been an integral part of Japanese culture and aesthetics.
And today one sees Japanese Scrolls, with earth-tone silk borders, as accent pieces in Western-style decor. Whether displayed traditionally, or custom framed, Japanese Scrolls are beautiful and affordable works of art.
Work directly with Master Takase to create exactly the scroll you want. Each calligraphy piece is a unique work of art individually created when your order is placed. Scrolls are completed in as little as a few days. These Japanese made scrolls use all Japanese materials include Japanese paper and high-quality silk. The scrolls arrive ready to hang and are designed to last generations.
With a custom Japanese Calligraphy design from Takase Studios your imagination is the limit. Work directly with Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase to create a work of art that will last a lifetime.
When your custom order is placed you will be working directly with Master Takase to create a unique work of art that is tailored to you and your taste. We work with you on all aspects of the design including the translation, font, and layout. We do this by showing you preliminary samples via e-mail that we then discuss and change as needed. These preliminary samples are not computer fonts but are hand-brushed designs personally created by Master Calligrapher Eri Takase to your specification.
Takase Studios has both native English and native Japanese translators so you know the translation will be absolutely correct. Further, we provide you with dictionary references and work with you until you are completely comfortable.
By working together we create a one of a kind work of art in a way that is both fun and informative. And most work is completed in as little as a few days. Shipping is from the continental United States and so is very quick for domestic clients.
