Traditionally flatter and shorter than Western spoons, these ceramic spoons are the perfect companion to the medium ceramic bowl. The beige shade is glazed and smooth while the slate shade has a unique rough texture -a common banko-yaki technique- that gives it a rustic sensibility.
Banko Yaki Ceramics:
Based in the Mie Prefecture, the art of Banko Yaki is a traditional ceramic technique that is entrenched with Japanese culture. Dating back to the 18th century, Banko Yaki ceramics offer unique heat resistance and a beautiful but practical composition in muted, earthy colors. These pieces continue to honor an ancient art in a modern world by reshaping the past to fit the needs of the future.

Named after 16th century Japanese tea master Sen no Rikyu, these sleek chopsticks include slightly tapered tips to fit comfortably in your hand. Rikyubashi Lacquered Chopsticks are a traditional handicraft from the rural Ishikawa Prefecture in Japan. Due to the natural wood and lacquer, the color, shape and size of each set will be slightly different.
The modern Japanese tea ceremony has largely been shaped by Sen no Rikyu's influence. Prior to serving tea, this celebrated tea master would serve guests a small meal accompanied by hand-carved chopsticks. The aroma of the freshly carved Japanese cedar brought a new dimension to the tea experience.
