A hand-turned and lacquered Japanese bowl made from prized Zelkova wood
Tsumugi woodworks are made in Yamanaka Prefecture, 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.
