Kutani Wakasa-nuri Chopstick Seikou Kiln Gourd Room PatternRegular price $9.70
Wakasa-nuri chopsticks by Seisakugama, a famous Kutani-yaki kiln. Wakasa-nuri chopsticks are lacquered chopsticks produced in Obama City, Fukui Prefecture. Because they are resistant to water and heat, Wakasa-nuri chopsticks are widely used as daily necessities, and Wakasa-nuri chopsticks account for most of the nuri chopsticks produced in Japan. Another attractive feature of Wakasa-nuri chopsticks is that each craftsman's individuality is strongly expressed, as all processes are carried out by a single craftsman rather than by a division of labor.
|Origin||Made in Japan, in Ishikawa Prefecture|
What is Seikou Kiln
Seikou kiln was opened in Terai-machi, Ishikawa Prefecture, in 1935, and its main purpose has been to create more modern Kutani ware using the styles of previous generations.
We are particularly proud of our blue hand Kutani yaki ware, and we are constantly pursuing designs and shapes that appeal to modern sensibilities, as well as creating elegant and profound handicrafts based on the unique color tones that have been developed through decades of research.
