Lue Brass Ladle Large #1, handcrafted by Japanese metalworker Ruka Kikuchi (aka Lue).
This handmade ladle is an elegant way to serve soups, sauces and dressings. Each step of its making – from cutting and hammering to welding and polishing – is carried out by Lue himself, creating a useful and enduring keepsake.
As time progresses you'll find that this ladle will patina and darken as the metal oxidises, also reacting to the natural oils on ones hands. Each is unique, featuring little scratches up-close where the craftsman has been at work.
Measures approx. L 27cm x W 8.5cm
Take note of the fine imperfections, a signature from Lue himself.
Handmade in Setouchi city, Okayama.
