It’s officially fall, ya’ll. And that means the spookiest holiday of them all. Do you have any Halloween parties on the calendar? Or maybe you’re just looking to introduce some spooky spirits into your everyday? Well look no further, for we’ve found the perfect halloween accessory you didn’t know you need: ghost chopstick rests handmade by a glass artisan based in Nagano, Japan.
These adorable little ghosts are the work of Masanaga Noike, the proprietor of glass studio naga-no-glass. After studying the craft of glass in Tokyo, Noike worked for a glassmaker in Hokkaido before founding his own studio in Nagano where he imbues his pieces with small be delightful touches of fun and whimsy.
The ghost chopstick rests (3080 yen) are each individually made by hand so their bodies and facial expressions vary slightly, which makes them all the more fun. He sells his work through the Japanese craft marketplace minne. You can also follow him on Instagram.
