A useful porcelain piece to help prevent the appearance of 'King Pin' in your home!

"Name: King Pin/ キングピン
Origin: Grows from the detritus left after household sewing projects.
Appearance: Comprised entirely from ends of thread, cloth scraps, dropped and bent pins and broken needles.
Typical Habitats: Under sofas, down the side of the armchair, at the bottom of sewing baskets and project bags.
Dangers: Favourite kind of mischief is to throw bits of thread and bent pins into the path of the vacuum cleaner, who is a very nervous creature.
This yōkai also has the potential to grow to large sizes and has been known to absorb smaller dust yōkai."

Porcelain vessel, with carved slip decoration and finished in a clear glossy glaze. Pincushion made from recycled fabric and filled with buckwheat husks, for a very satisfying pressing of pins. Finished with a few sashiko stitches. Comes with a handprinted postcard featuring King Pin and an information slip about this yōkai.

Handmade pot - please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the piece before purchasing.

Approximately 7cm high/ 6cm wide.
