Tame-Nuri Black Echizen Lacquerd Sakura Wood Pen Rest

Sale price$13.00 USD

4 in stock

This pen rest, made from Sakura wood and coated with genuine lacquer, is an authentic piece of Echizen lacquerware. Despite its simple design, its beauty is undeniable. The technique called Tame-Nuri involves applying a layer of translucent black lacquer over red lacquer, allowing a hint of red to show through.

One of the greatest charms of Tame-Nuri is that, over time, the black lacquer gradually wears away to reveal more of the underlying red, enhancing its beauty. In Japan, we often use the term "Wabi-Sabi" to describe the beauty of aging and imperfection. This pen rest perfectly embodies that concept of beauty through the passage of time.

The pen rest features a slight indentation in the center, preventing your pen from rolling off. Enjoy this small piece of Japanese traditional artisanship alongside your favorite pen.

Discover the Backstory of Korindo

Founded in 1938 in Fukui Prefecture and boasting a history of over 80 years, Korindo has gained recognition for its significant role, including providing ceremonial tableware for the enthronement of Japan's new emperor. "Korindo" is their brand name, formally known as Echizen Lacquerware Co., Ltd., which plays a vital role in inheriting the traditional craft of Echizen lacquerware, a quintessence of Japanese artisanship.

Their corporate philosophy, "Brilliance of Rin to the world," draws inspiration from Rin, a leading school of Japanese art and culture during the medieval era, still influential today. Being close to Kyoto, the capital at the time, has deeply rooted their work in Rin's influence, incorporating its patterns into their lacquerware. Embracing Rin's spirit of freedom, boldness, and challenge, combined with the craftsmanship passed down through generations, they aim to create lacquerware that enriches lives and brings joy.
