These leaf-shaped chopstick rests are crafted using the materials and techniques of cherry bark ware. Four different types of wood are sliced and ironed with a heated trowel using the "katamono" crafting technique. The veins of the leaves are expressed with the grain of the wood arranged in a herringbone pattern. The curve structure prevents the chopsticks from rolling off. It is a delightful set that will add some fun and colors to your dining table.
A 170-year-old Kabazaiku (traditional Japanese cherry bark craft) maker in Akita Prefecture. Studio Fujiki Denshiro was established as a Kabazaiku wholesaler in the early years and transformed into a leading manufacturing studio by the late sixth-generation owner.
