Suiteki

Suiteki (水滴, すいてき, lit. “a drop of water”)

Literally a “drop of water”. Suiteki is a small container for storing fresh water used for grinding the ink stick on the inkstone. Water containers can be stunningly beautiful, decorated with incised calligraphy and a colourful variety of oriental motifs. They certainly add to the overall ambience of a calligrapher’s studio.
