JUJU MORTAR AND STICK LYAMATADA
Yamatada pottery which has been made pottery such as mortar and grater for generations since the foundation of 1794 (6,Kannei) in the historical pottery production area Mino, dating back to the middle of the Heian era. It is a mortar made by Mr. Tomoya Kato who is its seventh generation.
As customers asked me to make a "left-handed mortar", we tried every trial and continued pursuing a beautiful balanced appearance even more firmly wearing a comb, regardless of which direction we turn right or left.
And, it was completed over 9 years, this mortar of "ripple comb” (Hamon-Kushime) by five combs of straight lines and curved lines.
While looking at the beauty of the appearance, you can slide smoothly without choosing a dominant hand, without putting strength. Because it can slide firmly without missing frictional force, it is recommended for those who are left-handed, as well as for women and elderly.
