Tsuno Cast Iron Bookends
Rikuchou Ogasawara

$250.00 USD
  • Introduction

    I am Tsuno, a set of Cast Iron Bookends. Although some people may be fearful of my strong horns, I will only ram into paperbacks.


  • Curator's Notes 


    These horn inspired bookends have become an iconic design of master craftsman Rikuchou Ogasawara. Made with traditional techniques from the Iwate region in Japan, the cast iron is both heavy duty and classic. An appropriately understated yet distinct design to hold up beloved books for many generations to come. 


    Tsuno Cast Iron Bookends was curated by Stevenson Aung
