Makiji Cylindrical Vessel

by Yusuke Tazawa

£180.00

A handcrafted pouring vessel by Japanese woodworker Yusuke Tazawa. This lacquered vessel is truly beautiful, a wooden base is then treated using the 'Makiji method' that's slightly brown in tone. The outside layer has been covered with a crude "urushi" lacquer and the powder of a sharpening stone to create a rough surface texture that captures the light in unique ways.

The pouring vessel is the perfect accompaniment to some smaller sake cups and is sure to sit perfectly in any home. This vessel is a real work of functional art.

Approx Dimensions: 8.5cm Diameter x 9.5cm Height

Japanese craftsman Yusuke Tazawa's philosophy is "simple design, quiet form". He hopes to make wooden tableware that blend in with daily life, objects that are forgotten once used but are fully functional when necessary. With a background in furniture making Yusuke's inspiration is nature itself, using the textures and tones found in the forest as a key element in to his work.

As a child Yusuke always took a strong interest in handicrafts, so as a student he specialised in Forest Science and Engineering. After working in conservation he took the plunge to convey the importance of the woodland and nature through his woodworking skills. He now works out of his studio named Think! Forest in Ebina, Kanagawa Prefecture and is well-known for producing special objects for the tea ceremony.
