A ceramic spoon makes having coffee or dessert all the more special. It’s a small thing, we know, but that makes it the best kind of detail. Pastel glazes make these spoons a playful addition to a saucer or table setting, but they can also enhance the dining experience.
The size of teaspoons, their smooth form give a gentle, soft mouthfeel, while porcelain doesn’t get unpleasantly cold when eating a chilled dish or ice cream.

Believed to the oldest form of artistic pottery produced in Japan, Mino-yaki (Mino ware) dates as far back as the Nara Period 710-794. Produced in the old Mino Province, in present-day Gifu Prefecture, it became popular for traditional tea ceremony vessels. Today, the styles of Mino-yaki are as varied as they are beautiful — from the warm rustic glazes of hand thrown traditional Kiso Seto, Black Seto, Shino and Oribe ware to the soft pastels of modern tableware.
Please note, these are hand glazed, so items may differ slightly from the image.
