About Shipping

Light base made of cherry bark ware, a traditional Japanese craft.
The product was made by DENSHIRO, a company that makes and sells cherry bark ware.

DENSHIRO has been working with the natural material of cherry bark, and making cherry bark ware since its foundation in 1851.

Cherry bark is an eco-friendly material as it will regrow after being harvested. Cherry bark ware mainly have two different kinds of finishes: the one is "SHIMOFURIGAWA", that retains the appearance of the raw bark ; the other is "MUJIGAWA" whose surface is thinly scraped to a polish.


'Light Base' is a 'light source' that houses light in what you put on.

Just put the things you found on the trip or place your favorite materials on and light up.
As an accent to moderate the night, you can enjoy it on the table, entrance hall, hallway, bedroom and so on.

Since the light source part does not have any heat, it is safe even with materials that are sensitive to heat.
