Whale Butter Dish

Whale Butter Dish is a collaboration between New York City designer Akira Yoshimura and Japanese manufacturer Sanomasa. It holds a 200g stick of butter as if the whale has swallowed it in one huge gulp. The entire process from modeling, casting, polishing, and coating to the engraved eyes, is done in the city of Takaoka, famous for its metalwork, in Toyama prefecture, Japan.

The benefits of cast aluminum include thermal conductivity, allowing it to get cold fast, as well as the durability to be refinished. The tray is inscribed with 10g measurements to aid in cooking and baking. The whale’s jaw edges allow the body to sit above the table surface for cleanliness and ease of use. With its beautifully handcrafted brass spout, we hope this dish will become a whimsical and useful addition to your dining table.Please wash with a pH-neutral detergent.

200gのバターがクジラに丸呑みされた様なユーモア込めたデザイン。富山県高岡市で模型から、鋳造、研磨、塗装と全ての工程を行っています。クジラの目も職人による手仕事で、輪郭を精密な機械で一個ずつ丁寧に彫られています。アルミ製の利点:熱伝導率が高いので冷えやすい、落としても割れ難い、塗装直し可能と末長く生活とともにご使用いただけます。20gずつの目盛り付きで、お料理やお菓子作りにも便利。真鍮製の潮吹き部分は蓋を持ちやすく丁寧に鏡面加工されています。
