Makiji Sun Bowl

by Maiko Okuno

The Makiji Sun Bowl is a beautiful large black lacquer bowl, made by Japanese craftsman Maiko Okuno.

Makiji is a lacquer method where powder and lacquer is mixed together to create a slightly rough surface texture. What's beautiful about this bowl is that it creates its own shadows, blending in to the surroundings of the home.

This piece has been hand turned on the lathe, once sanded it has a lacquer solution applied to protect the wood. This can last a whole lifetime with care.
