This ceramic ramen spoon (chirirenge) is a versatile utensil for any soup or rice meal. Use it alone to quickly scoop up food or paired with chopsticks for udon and soba noodles. Glazed in the earthy-hued pine ash from the city of Iga, this ceramic spoon has a vintage design.
Handcrafted using traditional techniques, Iga-ware uses clay and natural glazes local to the region which are extremely resistant to heat and react well to repeated firing. Iga clay offers an elevated level of hardness while the pebbles in the clay result in natural character and texture.
Due to the handcrafted quality of these products, individual differences in shade, gloss & size of glaze are to be expected.
100% ceramic, shino glaze, handmade in Iga, Japan
