Nambu Tekki Trivet

Regular price $85 Unit price  per 

Durable and designed to last a life time, these cast iron trivets are made by third generation forger Nobuho Miya.These lattice-shaped trivets come in 2 sizes.  Rest your hot cookware on top of the trivet to protect your table top surface.  The trivet's traditional yet graphic design can be enjoyed alone - displayed on a table or shelf - or underneath a vase of sculpture.

Due to the handmade nature of this product, there may be slight variation in each piece.

Nambu tekki is a traditional ironware craft that began in the middle of the 17th century in Northern Japan -- an area rich with iron resources. Nambu tekki has a distinct black color, the result of a Japanese lacquer glaze called "urushi" that is coated onto the iron to prevent rust. This iron trivet was designed and forged by Nobuho Miya. Miya works in his family's ironware studio, Kamasada, in the Iwate prefecture of Japan. With more than 40 years of experience, he practices Nambu techniques and is considered one of the living masters of this ancient art.
