Making Chopstick Rests at the Historical Museum

You can make celadon chopstick rests that are traditional to Ojiyama Pottery, the traditional pottery of the Sasayama Clan.

You can select from any of five molds and then turn the chopstick rests into our own original design after you take them from the mold by altering them with a bamboo tool and stamps.


Your chopstick rests will be fired for you at the Ojiyama Pottery Center and then mailed to you when they are finished.

Note: Depending on firing schedules, it may take a month or more before your pieces are fired.
