Fun and colourful chopsticks created by British Columbian artist, Wanda Shum. She expertly embellishes the ends of metal chopsticks using the millefiori technique in polymer clay. ‘Millefiori’ – a ‘thousand flower’ in Italian is a term borrowed from the Venetian glassmaking technique. The artist stacks different coloured clays into a ‘cane’ or roll, so that when cut into slices, the picture or pattern runs right through the entire cane. These intricate patterns are then affixed to the ends of stainless steel chopsticks, creating a unique one-of-a-kind design that personalizes your own utensils.
The metal ends are easily washed with soapy water after use, allowing these chopsticks to be used and reused time and again.
