Central to these creations is the use of Mino Tezuki Washi, Kozo paper hailing from Gifu Prefecture. Crafted by traditional artisans in Nagano, this handmade paper technique has earned the prestigious UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage status. The meticulous application of lacquer and persimmon tannin to each sheet by these skilled craftsmen creates a rich, immersive texture that deepens and transforms with age.
The intrinsic charm lies in the irregularity of the lacquer's texture, the mesmerizing luster of its uneven surfaces, the profound and somber shades of persimmon tannin, and the understated brilliance of brass. These materials, with their innate variations and their susceptibility to the passage of time, provide a visual and tactile journey through the essence of Japanese craftsmanship.
These dishes will patina over time, the appearance and texture will change with use.

Brass and copper will naturally patina over time. Oil and air will naturally darken this piece and make it shinier. This is part of its natural beauty. Do not use chemicals to clean. If exposed to water or moisture for long periods of time, it may cause the metal to change color quicker or spot.
