FUTAGAMI paperweight square
Designed by Masanori Oji and made by Futagami, Japan.
Founded in 1897, FUTAGAMI has a long history of making brass artifacts used in the Buddhist traditions. Brass products gradually change their colour over the course of many years dues to oxidisation. The longer they are used, the richer they become.

These are polyhedral brass objects, available in three types, Triangle, Square, and Rhombus. As all faces are parallel, you can easily hold it between the tips of your first two fingers. The surface of the paperweight is IHADA-finished, a crude casting surface. The paperweight gradually changes its color over the course of years due to oxidization. The longer it is used, the richer and subtler it becomes.
