Tsumugi Wooden Bowl - Mokko Black
ø4.25" x H3"
Tsumugi woodworks are made in Yamanaka Prefecture in Japan, where lacquering and woodworking techniques have sustained the craftsman population for centuries. These handmade wooden bowls are made from Japanese Zelkova wood, which is prized in Japan for building traditional Tansu furniture and Taiko drums. Finely lacquered to showcase the natural wood grain, the Tsumugi bowl is an artful way to enjoy soups and rice dishes. Perfectly symmetrical and smooth to the touch, this stunning piece is a testament to the perfection that can be achieved by a pair human hands.
Hailing from the Yamanaka region of Japan, where lacquering has been practiced since the 16th century, the Gato Woodworks collection comprises beautiful cups, bowls, and decor born from traditional processes requiring the highest level of skill. Through meticulous cutting, carving, shaving, and lacquering, Gato’s artisans manage to mold wood into works of art that pay homage to their arboreal origins. Each lightweight piece showcases an exquisite wood grain unmarred by the production process and is as functional as it is beautiful.
