If you’re like us, when you leave a Japanese restaurant, the sleeve your chopsticks came looks like shitty origami. Maybe it’s because we’re fidgety, but we can’t help but mess with that piece of paper. Turns out we’re not the only ones. Japanese Tip is an exhibition that includes over 8,000 chopstick wrappers left behind by guests at restaurants around Japan. The idea is that of Yuki Tatsumi, a waiter who noticed customers were playing with the bits of paper, who collected over 12,000 little creations. While the exhibition has closed, you can still see many of the sculptures on the Japanese Tip site. Then steal some inspiration for the next time you have sushi.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
