Toshiaki Ito doesn't aim to reinvent the wheel. But he does want to perfect it. Mr. Ito is the AOI Tea Company's stone mill carver.
As the stone carver for AOI Tea Company, Ito creates and maintains the company's collection of hundreds of hand-crafted granite grinding wheels. "Each wheel possesses its own character," says Ito. "Each stone has a unique temperament and must be carved accordingly — they are like my children." www.aoitea.com
