It’s nothing like you have seen before. This innovative new tin plate is much talked about but has barely left its country of birth – Japan. Hammered over 500 times by master craftsmen and literally translated as tin paper, “Suzugami” is mysteriously flexible and bendable like origami paper but it won’t break when bent. It helps to handle it gently so its original patterns and lustrous surface will last longer, but the good news is it’s dishwasher safe. It can be flattened using a roller pin.
The creators of this magical product are a manufacturer established in 1909, specialised in making “orin” bowl gongs for Buddhist temples.
There are only ten “orin” bowl artists in all of Japan, three of whom work at this studio. They create round shaped orin gongs by hammering down metal. These gongs produce sounds that are beautiful and peaceful. Applying this special hammering technique, “Suzugami” was born.
This product is dishwasher safe. Use of chopsticks or wooden cutlery recommended.
