This striking hand crafted tea caddy is made from from Japanese Zelkova Elm, and finished with lacquer in a unique smoke gray colour.
The Japanese word KISEN describes the natural annual growth rings of trees. These growth rings are highlighted with expert craftsmanship by using one block of Zelkova elmwood such that the natural patterns of the wood flow from the container to the lid.
As much a container for tea, these are beautiful artistic objects that allow you to appreciate the true beauty of natural wood.
It is made in Yamanaka Japan by Gato Mikio, a family run craft studio with over 100 years of history, using traditional and highly technical wood turning techniques.
*Please note: as this is a natural product, colour & wood grain markings may differ slightly to the product pictured
