Mr. Tomii uses various techniques such as turning, moulding, and lacquer to create a unique world with precision, warmth, and a strong sense of purpose. Aiming to create something that becomes like an indivisible material, the material, the creator, and the user through use. I can't wait to see what it looks like.

This "chestnut rim plate" has been greatly updated from what Mr. Tomii used to make. It becomes thicker, and the chisel is put in the whole, and the boundary becomes gentle and ambiguous. However, due to the excellent design, the feeling of mass has increased and the density has become higher than before.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT director and chef Yuko Watanabe also

I fell in love at first sight the moment I picked up the chestnut rim dish . I immediately bought a few seats and literally use it every day, with the enthusiasm of "I will cherish it for the rest of my life!"

If you look at the image, you can see that it is quite thick. The shape is based on an old Nordic wooden plate, giving it a soft and generous impression.

After carving with a lathe, the whole is carved with a chisel and a plane to give it a soft look.

The way it changes over time depends on how it is used, but Mr. Tomii's recommendation is to "use the cutlery as hard as you can and change it to look like an actual old wooden plate from Northern Europe."

As the oil of the food is used, it will become familiar with the knife mark, and the texture will gradually change. Of course, this is a work that I would like to use for professionals, but also for those who do not have a wooden plate or who are not good at cleaning it.

This 24cm plate is easy to use for everyday meals, and can be used not only as a serving plate, but also as a cake plate or bread plate. It's also nice to put a small cup and baked sweets on it and use it as a single plate.

There is also a 27cm version of the same "chestnut rim plate" . This is even more convenient as a one-plate main dish.

It is a precious solid work with luxurious thickness. Please enjoy it with the feeling of using it a lot and growing it.
It's not an exaggeration, it's a lifetime vessel.

Diameter: Approx. 24cm / Height: Approx. 1.5cm
