The design that inspired this piece was meticulously crafted in Kyoto of lightweight bamboo. We were quite taken with its pleasing line and the way it sits in the hand. So we had it copied in ebony wood and then, as a tribute, we had it cast in bronze.
Handcrafted in Bali; small markings showing the hand of the artisan are considered part of the charm and character of the piece.

They make exquisitely practical tools or more specifically turn banal objects or office necessities into exquisite objects. Jotting a note, stamping a logo, placing a bookmark, handing someone a business card, each moment suddenly holds real weight. Many of their designs have a slight gilding, all of them are of a quality we have rarely encountered before.
