Hammered Spoons by Yumi Nakamura
Yumi Nakamura creates rugged spoons that are teeming with gritty personalities. Working mainly with copper and brass, she hammers out the shapes – an ancient process that dates back to the the Yayoi Period (300 BC – 300AD) 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). If you need help ordering from abroad click here for assistance.
