Kinto’s Ceramic Lab range balances orderly, neat designs with the warm patterns of sandstone native to the Nagasaki prefecture of Japan, where it is manufactured. Many transformations occur in this unique porcelain, which is ultra-sensitive to temperature and humidity when firing. This results in a speckled, ‘scorched’-looking pattern called ‘yo-hen’. The natural unevenness of this effect is balanced by orderly, neat shapes and a sharp delineation between the textured bottom and smooth sides. This utensil holder features a wide mouth for easy access to spoons, spatulas and other long-handled tools while the narrow neck ensures they won’t flare out.
Do not overheat heat empty or without water in the microwave, and avoid using abrasive scrubbers or steel wool. Due to the unique nature of this pottery, pieces may vary slightly in patterns and shapes.
Why we love it
'It's sturdy and has good weight, and I like that I can easily pick it up by the neck when wiping down my countertop.'
