You can hear the crackle of firewood and the rhythmic clang of the spatula from the kitchen when the sun hasn't yet risen. A familiar festive vibe is right around the corner. The overnight aged rice and herbs have been ground and awaiting skilled hands to knead them into the hue of this particular season. Whack, whack, whack, whack, whack. The rice cake detaches from the mould with a pattern that presents our gratitude towards the gods and ancestors.
Tsháu-á-kué (鼠麴粿) is Lennon Tool Bar's 2021 Spring Limited Ink.
Lennon Tool Bar was founded in 2014 at Tamsui, Taiwan. Initially they produced and promoted the art and craft of Indigo Dyeing, a business that flourished a century ago when Taiwan exported a considerable amount of “doroai” — or the raw material of colorants used in Indigo Dyeing — to the Japanese Empire. In recent years, Lennon Tool Bar has launched a series of fountain pen inks in order to popularize colors used in Indigo Dyeing and to present the enduring beauty of traditional workmanship.
