Small Black Container

by Maiko Okuno


This small black container by Japanese lacquer craftsman Maiko Okuno is a beautiful vessel, very functional and well crafted.

It's a small inverted dome box which has been hand turned out of wood on the lathe, and then precisely cut to shape with hand tools. Once finished and dried it is then treated with a lacquer solution to protect the wood. As well as it being a nice form to look at, it's also very practical as you can store jewellery and other precious objects inside.
