A wooden box that contain a piece of stone.  A stone that is used for grinding the ink bar – an inkstone.

A little water is added from the water drip onto the inkstone, one can still starting grinding the ink.  In a small circular movement while keeping the ink still perpendicular to the stone, slowing the ink is dissolved.  Though the inkstone has a very smooth surface, under the microscope this surface is in fact saw like, able to fine grind the inkstone.

The inkstone is carved out from a single piece of stone and this detail is carried through to the case which is also carved out from a single piece of wood.

This is a bamboo case with all the parts; hinges, bolds, handles are made out of bamboo.  This brings back a lot of memories for me, as a child of a folkcraft shop owners this is the version of the Bond’s gadget briefcase I had.  Inside stored all my little treasures.
