My Chop Stick Rests make a beautiful edition to any oriental dining experience. Made using real laurel leaves and glazed with a calming green and white finish with a subtle ‘toasted’ speckling to mimic the spotting on the real leaves. Each box set includes a pair of rests (1 per person), 2 pairs of chop sticks and a presentation box.
Firstly, I use a small ‘Aucuba Japonica Laurel’ Leaf to create the leaf impression in clay and then form it into a small curved resting dish. The foot of the rest is created by applying a second smaller laurel leaf to the base for that extra special finishing touch. My Chop Stick Rests are perfect as gifts for people who appreciate handmade ceramics. They make an especially pleasing ‘Dine for Two’ gift when combined with a matching Sushi Dish (also available in my shop).
I use stoneware clay fired to 1260 degrees, making each piece durable for functional purposes. All glazes are dishwasher and food safe. However please read the additional care instructions below.
Chop Stick Dimensions: typically 5 x 9 cm with a curve depth of approximately 1-3 cm. Gift Box 9.5 x 43 x 6 cm.
Care: Please treat as a bone china plate. Hand wash in order to retain the glossy finish of the overall glaze. This will also help to retain the integrity of the edges.
