A fantastic bento box handmade by Motoharu Ozawa at his studio in Toki, Japan. This piece features a kohiki glaze (dipping a dark clay body into a white slip) that's rustic in appearance, with unique markings on the surface that gives it character and charm. The bento box also comes with a handcrafted wooden lid to seal any contents.

Traditionally a bento box holds rice, fish or meat, with pickled or cooked vegetables, and keeps each portion separate using a stacking method. Here you can see the containers split apart in to three, and could be used for both functional purposes, such as holding spices and foods, to a sculptural object.
