These beautiful brass polyhedrals, come in three different designs, Triangle, Square, and Rhombus. As all faces are parallel, you can easily hold it between the tips of your first two fingers. The surface of each paperweight is IHADA-finished, a crude casting, giving each piece a unique textured surface.
We have Natural Gold color and Kuro-Mura Black color available for each design.
Kuro-Mura black finish is a traditional method used for Buddhist altar articles, which mixes pigments with Japanese lacquer, URUSHI.
The paperweights' brass gradually changes color over time due to oxidization. The longer it is used, the richer and subtler it becomes.
