TESHIO comes from the saying in Japanese, “TESHIO NI KAKERU,” which means to cherish a person or an object with personal care and attention.
TESHIO also means a small serving of salt on a little plate which is meant to purify the table in the Japanese tradition. This small serving of salt happened to be used as seasoning for dishes in a course of time, and the small plate used to serve salt was named “TESHIO-ZARA (plates)” eventually.
Let's use the Small Plate as a communication tool on the table. Not only serving food on the plate, but you can also enjoy it by just looking at it.
There are varieties of designs; scenery, trick art, hashi-yasume plate (to put chopsticks on an eating small plate across its edges during a break), and one stroke drawing. Pick up the one you like!
Playful & fun!
