Romantic Japanese Calligraphy

Express your love with beautiful Japanese Calligraphy. These romantic gifts are perfect for engagements, weddings, paper anniversaries, house warming gifts ... or for no reason at all. Each individual work of art is hand-lettered by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase and is a one of a kind reminder that will last a lifetime.

Traditionally in the US the 1st wedding anniversary (and in the UK the 2nd) is the paper anniversary. We have many gift ideas perfect for an anniversary gift - and the work on handmade Japanese paper will last generations.

Below we have options for both non-Custom and custom art. The non-custom art is personally created by Master Takase at the time of your order. This is an individually created work of art - this is not a print and not mass produced. Each work comes with Master Takase's personal signature and seal.

We also offer several custom designs and for these you will be working directly with Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri 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 discuss and change as needed. In this way you will see the final art before it is created and have input into the design.

Takase Studios has both native English and native Japanese speaking translators and we are happy to provide you with dictionary references and to work with you until you are completely comfortable with the translation as well as the design. We want you to be as happy with the meaning as you are with Master Takase's beautiful art.

All art is on hand-made Japanese paper that we import ourselves directly from the paper-maker in Kochi Japan. This is a special paper that is ideally suited to Western-style framing and we offer several unframed options and one framed option. We also offer several designs on beautiful Japanese scrolls which we import from Nara.

And each work can usually be created and mailed within a few business days. Beautiful art without the wait! And the art is affordable with prices starting at $105 for 8 x 12" non-custom art and $135 for 8 x 12" custom art. This is an amazing price for original and custom art.

SoulMates
(tamashii no tomo)

There are several ways to translate "soul mates" to Japanese. Here we use an original design that is based on the translation of Soul (tamashii) and Mates (tomo). Master Takase created this original design by combining the phrase tamashii no tomo into one simple elegant design.

Each design also has two names that are translated using katakana - this is the standard way names are translated to Japanese and the character are like English letters and simply represent the sound and have no meaning. So you don't have to worry about unintended or bad meanings.

Non-Custom Art

These original designs by Master Takase are available unframed in the three sizes: 8 x 12" (20 x 30 cm), 12 x 18" (30 x 45 cm); and 15 x 22" (38 x 55 cm). We would also be happy to cut the paper to size (charging the original paper size) should you need a smaller size.

Each work is personally hand-brushed and signed by Master Takase at the time of our order. The art is on special hand-made Japanese paper that we import directly from the papermaker in Kyushu and is perfect for Western-style framing. We do encourage our clients to order the art unframed and have it framed locally.

We also offer one framed option that is 16 x 20" (40 x 50 cm); with a black metal frame and double mat (black inner, white outer) and appears very similar to the samples shown below. Framed art arrives ready to display.
