Newly added to the collection of beautiful works of wooden lacquerware from Gato Mikio Shoten, KOTON is an exquisite piece of art that is not just an art object but is also practical.
KOTON is a simple wooden container that can blend in any space. It makes one feel the beauty and warmth of wood in daily life. It is made with three separable pieces creating two compartments and the top one works as a lid as well as a tray/plate. You can store precious objects such as jewelry, or use them as a plate and bowls - they would be great to serve wagashi (Japanese sweets) or for food and soup.

This special piece is created by skilled artisans of a century old company using the advanced turnery technology of Yamanaka Shikki lacquerware, a traditional craft of Ishikawa Prefecture combined with contemporary design by Hiromichi Konno.

Now also available in natural wood-->
