Persimmon & Bamboo Chopsticks Set

Just as the shades of the clouds, shapes of the ocean waves, whistles of birds, these chopsticks offer a raw, one-of-a-kind experience of nature in the home. They are crafted one at a time from persimmon wood and bamboo canes by Eric & Lori Wright, the creative and sculpting forces behind ME Speak Design. Created by the force of nature, a portion of the limbs of the majestic grass are kept intact as a design element, and each bamboo holder is lightly charred by fire, developing its own palette of shades. The composition is elegantly completed with the shine of copper inlays at the end of each chopstick. Creativity and artistry are fulfilled through the versatility and precision of beautifully tapered, medium-width round tips of the chopsticks below octagonal upper portions, making each meal a more deeply satisfying experience.

The Story

Eric and Lori Wright create wood and hand-hammered copper and brass tableware, chopsticks, serving utensils and more at their home studio in the state of Georgia. With a Japanese influence and eye for simple elegance, each piece is unique and new designs are continually tested and refined. Together, Eric and Lori form a team with a background that spans Eric's time in Maharashtra, India studying sustainable architecture and furniture making, to his work in Oregon building titanium bicycle frames and learning TIG welding and machining. Lori grew up with a mother of Japanese and Hawaiian heritage whose lasting influence meshes beautifully with the couples Southern roots to create a elegantly organic and recognizable style.
