About Kenji Usuda
"Living in the woods, thinking of the woods, creating in the woods" is the philosophy of Kenji Usuda, an award-winning Japanese woodworker who meticulously crafts gorgeous wares on a forested plot of land near his home in Hokkaido. As part of his efforts to restore the vibrancy of the forest around him, Usuda carefully thins local tree populations then uses the resulting lumber to create one-of-a-kind woodworks.

Dimensions: 4.75" L x 4.5" W x 3" H
Care: To clean, wash the bowl with minimal detergent, then dry immediately and thoroughly. If necessary, gently apply additional walnut oil or beeswax. Not microwave- or dishwasher-safe.
