Kozo Ueda is a Tokyo silverware craftsman who was born in 1939 in Daito-ku, Tokyo. He was awarded a medal of honor by the government. In 1954, he began making silverware under the instruction of his father, Shinjiro.
   His wonderful silver dishes show a unique Japanese delicacy, combined with a Western durability and utility. The sincerity and beauty of his works ensures that they are often passed down from generation to generation.
   He says: 'My mission is to continue to suggest to Japanese people that there is a genuine and mature silverware culture. Silverware should become family treasure if it is used for 50 or 100 years, and I'd llike to see its value strengthened with age and use.’
   In 1984, he became a director of the Tokyo Gold and Silverware Industry Association and then administrative director.
   In 1990, he was designated a Traditional Craftsman by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry.
