Brass Onion Sliver Chopstick Rests


From Sliced Food to Objet d'art

Apple slices and onion slivers are foods commonly found in almost any house. They're so common, in fact, that we don’t see them as anything else. But a pair of Japanese designers saw them as a gift of beauty from mother nature. So they decided to replicate these forms from pure brass, and finishing them off with a distressed look.

The resulting series of brass household objects were named “cut piece.” From the collection, this series of onion sliver chopstick rests add the perfect amount of whimsy to any table setting. They come in a set of 4 that vary in size so that they nest together, just like the skin of an onion.

Each are handmade by craftsman and the attention to detail shines through in the lines of the onion skin.
