Overview

The natural weight of cast iron holds table and shelf-top book collections easily in this stylized "Bird Foot" pair of bookends from designer T. Nakabayashi.

Nambu Cast Iron was first made in the middle of the 17th century in Iwate, Northern Japan. A master from Kyoto was summoned there to create an iron pot for a tea ceremony, and it was the beginning of the Nambu Tekki (Cast Iron) craft. It became exemplary of Japanese Traditional Craft, and is still popular today. The black color is the result of a Japanese lacquer glaze call urushi which prevents rust. The Bird Foot Bookends are part of a range of animal and symbol designs created in the famed material by designer T. Nakabayashi.
