Me de taberu is a famous Japanese expression that means “eat with your eyes.” Those who appreciate the efficient functionality of the culture’s utensils may be stuffed to the gills when viewing “Objects of Use and Beauty: Design and Craft in Japanese Culinary Tools,” at Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, Massachusetts, through October 28. Among some 100 pieces are architectural bamboo oni oroshi, or daikon graters, and urchinlike hemp-palm tawashi, cleaning brushes, plus a re-created Japanese residential kitchen.
