波佐見焼 HASAMIYAKI CERAMICS
Hasami is located close to Arita and Imari, but not nearly as famous.
Its manufacturers historically focused on mass-market ceramic products for ordinary Japanese people.

Introduction

.......................................................................


A chopstick rest (箸置け, hashioke)
is tableware similar to a spoon rest, used to keep chopsticks away from the table and also to prevent used chopsticks from contaminating or rolling off tables. They are made in various shapes from clay, wood, glass, or precious stone such as jade. Some people prepare them from bags of half-split disposable chopsticks in origami manner.

In Japan, chopstick rests are usually used at formal dinners and placed on the front-left side of the dishes. The chopsticks are placed parallel to the table edge with the points toward the left.

They come in many forms, patterns and colors.
The origin dates back to Shinto offerings with food for the deities, where the chopsticks made from bamboo could not simply put on the tray. So they were placed on a small clay wrapper, later used as hachioki.
