RINKA Usuki Chopstick Rest Set

JPY ¥5,200

Only 1 piece in stock!

A set of four chopstick rests from the RINKA series with flower shapes. The restrained matte texture of these chopstick rests is beautifully crafted, showing the fine handiwork. Each is covered with four different pale glazes, white, pink, blue, and green, reminiscent of delicate "Wagashi", traditional Japanese sweets.

Usukiyaki is produced using a technique called "Katauchi" (molding). The sheet-shaped-clay is placed on a plaster mold, and is shaped with the fingers including each petal. This process gives the work a handmade feel that cannot be achieved through mass production, and gives it a stoneware-like appearance even though it is a porcelain piece.

RINKA Series
This series is inspired by the image of gentle wild flowers that soothe and heal the soul.
When laid out on a table, it creates a scene of brilliance and warmth, just like a field full of blooming flowers.

Since all products are made by hand, there may be individual differences in shape and color.
We hope you will enjoy them as the warmth of handmade products.

USUKIYAKI is the Japanese name for Usukiware, but it is also a project name. It suddenly disappeared from the world 200 years ago. However, in 2015, local potters revived this mysterious pottery.

The works, which are a fusion of traditional techniques and modern sensibilities, have a mysterious texture that reminds us of nostalgia in the midst of newness.

Its reputation in Japan and abroad is growing every day, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain.

Handcrafted plates using the “Katauchi” Method

Usuki ware has many white porcelain wreaths made by Shimabara potters. It is a beautiful design in which the food is placed in the middle of the flower.

To form the plates, they covered a plaster mold with a thin layer of base material and pressed it by hand to form a circle flower or petal, or used the Katauchi method, a molding technique that copies the pattern carved into the mold onto the bowl.

In this way, the warmth of hand-building remains, compared to casting, which involves pouring liquid pottery into a mold.

AbouT USUKI ware

Usuki ware is based on the concept that a vessel is a frame for serving food.

To bring out the beauty of the traditional food culture of Usuki, such as ingredients nurtured by the rich sea and mountains, organically grown crops, and the miso, soy sauce, and sake that have been used since ancient times, the pottery is created using natural shapes and materials as motifs.

They hope to bring this food culture, as well as the beauty of nature and the creative spirit of Usuki, to the tables of people around the world through their creations.
