Spoon & Tamago
We love these spoons found via the excellent Spoon & Tamago blog. They are made by Japanese craftswoman Yumi Nakamura who works mainly in copper and brass. The shapes are hammered out using an ancient process that dates back to the the Yayoi Period (300 BC – 300AD) when these types of metallic material first entered Japan. Back then, everything from vessels and mirrors to swords and shields were made this way.
The spoons are available through CIBONE (1,995 – 3,150 yen). Help for those ordering from abroadis available here.
