About This Product

This small, porcelain ink stone is meant for making liquid ink from colored ink sticks. With traditional black sumi ink stones, it's hard to see the concentration or hue of a color, so Boku-Undo offers these elegant white stones to make things a bit easier. Try using it with Saiboku Aya ink sticks, as shown in our photos.

To grind ink sticks into liquid ink, start with a spoonful of water on the higher, more textured end of the ink stone. Rub the ink stick in small, mindful circles in the water. No dry powder is created; instead, the ink gradually disperses the water and it gradually becomes thicker and more opaque.

Measures 3.5" at widest point. Made in Japan.

Also available in a rectangular version with angled bottom.
