This natural flat grinding Suzuri stone is used with sumi ink sticks to create ink for Sumi-e painting.
To avoid unevenness, indentations and grooves, grind the ink over the entire surface of the stone. Never leave the ink stick on the wet stone surface as it will adhere and damage the stone’s surface. Wash the stone in plain water after each use. Gently wash the stone with water by hand to preserve the surface of the stone.
This Suzuri stone measures 5 ½” x 3”
