Rice PaddleRegular price
Inspired by the Japanese 'shamoji', a large flat spoon to traditionally serve rice, the large head effectively sweeps and stirs grains without mashing them. The handle with a slight curve allows for easy gripping and is ever so tactile.
Also useful in the kitchen generally to toss vegetables in a roasting tray, and cook with. It's a lovely piece that is versatile to use and to take straight to the serving table.
One for all the fellow rice lovers out there.
Made by Daniel (artisan in Mtwara, Tanzania), this piece has been beautifully carved and is a perfect gift for a foodie. Some of the paddles feature a unique two-toned natural grain, showcasing the raw natural beauty of African Blackwood.
As each piece is individually carved, there may be slight variations in the shape and size making it one of a kind.
We work directly with our group of Makonde wood carvers who are renowned for their craftsmanship, a skill passed down for generations from father to son.
