like a European sculpture

Can also be used as a cutlery rest

With a slightly larger size of 4.5-5 cm in diameter, it can be used not only as a chopstick rest, but also as a spoon and fork. If you use it when eating curry, pasta, etc., the atmosphere will go up.

It is a product with individual differences. Depending on how the glaze is applied, the baked color and pinholes will look different one by one. We hope that you will understand in advance that it is a handmade taste. You can't choose which item you receive, but we hope you'll look forward to it until it arrives.

Understanding of "Utsuwa"
〇Because each product is handmade, there may be individual differences in color, shape, pattern, size, thickness, weight, etc. Also, even with the same glaze and clay, uneven colors and shading will appear.
〇Because the painting is also hand-painted one by one, the expression may differ.
〇 Depending on the product, there may be small holes, small black dots, line scratches, protrusions, pinholes, rattling, or distortion due to the manufacturing process.
〇 We have processed the image of the product so that the color is as close to the real thing as possible, but the color and texture may look different depending on the display screen of your computer or smartphone.
〇In our shop, we not only inspect the manufacturer, pottery, and artist, but also deliver products that have passed the final inspection at our store.
〇 Product photos are sample shots, so the items you receive will not be the same in detail.
〇 We do not accept returns or exchanges due to customer's convenience. Please purchase after understanding and acknowledging this.
〇 We would be happy if you could enjoy the “taste” and “interest” of handmade products that are not found in factory mass-produced products!

Recommended maintenance method from Ruriame Koubou

〇 You can use the microwave oven and dishwasher, but please be careful not to put a strain on the container.
〇 If you put too much dark-colored drink in a cup with a white inside, the color will gradually transfer. You can prevent discoloration to some extent by sealing with rice water.
(How to care for the water that has been washed with rice)
1. Prepare a thin paste made by simmering rice water.
2. Put the prepared water into the bowl and soak for 1-2 hours.
3. After that, rinse off the water, wipe it off, and wash the container with water.
*We do not recommend using rice water on the colored glaze, as it may cause discoloration.

〇To prevent mold, please dry the container completely after washing before putting it away.
