Description

The chopstick rests made by a kiln in Japan that specialises in Arita yaki since 1865. 

It is an auspicious arrow feather pattern. The arrow is given at Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples as a Japanese New Year's lucky charm or sacred tool. It has been used in Japan for a long time, and now it is also a talisman. 

In the conversation with Mr Tokunaga, the 5th generation of Kouraku Kiln, we can immensely feel the dedication and sophistication behind the craft. 

Arita porcelain is made from ceramic stone, moulded, glazed and baked at a high temperature of 1300 degrees for more than 17 hours. 

Arita ware is popular among restaurants all over the world, and they are light, hard and durable. 

As every piece has its handmade feature, slight irregularities in size, glaze, colour and texture might occur and reflect the nature of the artisan product.
