Here're some of his products:
Matte Kettle The unique shape is decorative and ornamental, yet functional. The stay-cool handle can be folded to the sides—storage also becomes non-issue even with limited spaces.
Tongs with/without Holes The tongs are made by an integrated moding—no joint design which allows you to wash it easily and keep it clean. Ideal for pasta, sauté meat and fish, salad, and udon/soba noodle—easy to hold and pick.
Punching strainer The slightly dented bottom is practical for a proper draining. This strainer fits perfectly inside this Yanagi's stainless steel bowl of each size, leaving enough space for liquids to drain. Ideal for everyday use as washing vegetables, draining noodles.
Bowl Each size of the strainers and bowls fit perfectly. The bowls are sleek with a gently curled rim and easily nestable on their own.
