Kobayashi Katsuhisa
Okayama, Japan

Kobayashi Katsuhisa is a talented woodworker who understands not only the “what” of the woods that he uses but the “why” of design. Because of that, he is enamored with the American Shaker perspective on the relationship between utility and beauty. In this tea box, Kobayashi-san has cleverly and extremely skillfully modified the classic Shaker oval box for modern purposes. A flat, tightly fitted lid is covered by a traditional one with swallowtails and copper tacks. The exterior of the box and lids are then carefully rubbed with beeswax. This oak, Shaker-style tea box is too beautiful to be relegated to your cabinet. Fill the natural, untreated interior with spices, ground coffee, loose tea, or any small item that needs to be contained.
