Bespoke kigata mould for 空庵 Kuan

Simply Native is pleased to announce the completion of bespoke kigata mould for a Japanese tea house 空庵 Kuan in Newcastle.

The special wooden moulds representing Australian flowers were created over the course of more than a year with Robert Davies, founder of 空庵 kuan tea house, and associated craftsmen in Kyoto.

The wooden moulds were specially made by a long-established craftsman in Kyoto, who is renowned as one of the best in Japan. Thank you, Horiku-raido for aligning with our request.

The finished Kigata moulds are then passed on to another local confectioner in Kyoto, where they are turned into Wasanbon sweets.

ニューカッスルの茶室「 空庵」のオーナーである、ロバート・デイビス氏からご依頼いただき、オーストラリアの草木を表現した特注の木型を完成させたことを嬉しく思います。
