Nisshoku (eclipse) bottle opener
Nisshoku (eclipse) bottle opener

A hand poured sand-cast brass bottle opener from a foundry founded in 1897 in the central Japanese city of Takaoka in Toyama Prefecture. The casting is largely left 'i-hada', which means with a raw cast surface maintaining any texture or discolouration naturally drawn from the sand into which the molten brass is poured; considered a guarantee of their solidity, veracity of manufacture, but also of their uniqueness. The waku bottle opener takes the form of a simple linear frame and is part of a series of homewares developed in partnership with Oji Masanori in order to raise awareness amongst a wider public of both the possibilities of the material and the remarkable skills of its artisan producers. Measures about 80mm by 60mm by 7mm deep.
