This beautiful ceramic is made by ceramist ”Koh Ichino 市野耕” in Ehime Japan.
His chopstick rest, with a "Gourd ひょうたん" plant shape makes the chopsticks sit nicely and beautifully.
It is very interesting to see how the original red clay turns into a naturally white face when the white clay slip is added, which is called "white makeup" in Japan. These white ceramics show a natural depth of colour, which comes from minerals in the soil combined with the ceramists skills.
* This is a hand made ceramic so each piece has a slightly different colour, shape and character...
Product Care: Do not use in the oven/ microwave/ fridge/ freezer/ dishwasher. Wash gently with a soft sponge and washing up liquid.
