This handsome bowl is made in Yamanaka Prefecture, where lacquering and woodworking have been practiced by craftsmen for centuries. The Tsumugi bowls are made from Japanese Zelkova wood, which is prized in Japan for building traditional Tansu furniture and Taiko drums. Lacquered in a way that showcases 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.
Gato’s collection of Japanese wood and lacquer works is native to the Yamanaka region of Japan. The centuries-old manufacturing process is as delicate and detailed as the pieces themselves. From precise carving to meticulous lacquering, modern Japanese woodworking molds traditional methods into contemporary shapes. The results are elegant, amazingly lightweight pieces that are as functional as they are beautiful.
